Library Director Will Adamczyk will hold his virtual Local History Book Group this evening via Zoom. The book to be read in advance is Black Bostonians: Family Life and Community Struggle in the Antebellum North by James Horton (c1999).
This work creates a profile of Black Bostonians by examining lifestyles, family structure, culture, community, religion, and marriage patterns. The title was first published in 1979 and then revised in 1999. It brings to light many individual African Americans who lived and worked in Boston, including in the North End and Beacon Hill communities. It is an important contribution to Boston history and we encourage you to participate in a lively discussion about it with Will online.
Advance registration is required at our website; a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program. To reserve a copy of the book, please call the Reference Dept. at (617) 898-4964 or go to our website library catalog at www.miltonlibrary.org
