Emancipation Trail: Civil Rights for All
Presenter: Vincent Licenziato
Sunday, February 15 at 2PM
Vincent Licenziato, creator of the new Emancipation Trail in Boston, will discuss his new guide for the historic trail that individuals and families can use to help them appreciate and discuss the rich culture of emancipation to which Bostonians and others have contributed. The trail goes beyond Boston’s familiar Black Heritage Trail, which is mostly confined to Beacon Hill. It complements the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail, and dips into the American Revolution, when American colony was “emancipated” from England, and expands the celebration of Black emancipation to the Back Bay, the South End, Roxbury, Mattapan and Boston City Hall Plaza with its towering statue of Bill Russell.
