Boston pioneered the Abolitionist movement to destroy the institution of slavery in America. While often facing prejudice equal to any in the South, men and women of color in this city have long been at the forefront of the fight for equal rights. From Crispus Attucks to Frederick Douglass, black citizens of Boston have fought tooth and nail for freedom. From Phyllis Wheatley to slaves whose names are only now being rediscovered and recognized, the unsung heroes can often be the most profound ones in our memories.
Meet the men and women, black and white, who helped fight inequity in the British empire, and continued the fight that has led to today’s America.
