Research & Projects
Tufts African American Freedom Trail ProjectThe African American Freedom Trail Project is a city-wide organizational network and community-based archive, housed at Tufts University. Driven by faculty and student research, the project maps African American public history sites, known and unknown, while developing collaborative, community-based public history projects across greater Boston. Through collaborative research, archival exhibits, oral history projects, and community engagements, this project aims to develop African American historical memory and inter-generational community across historic African American communities in greater Boston. Ultimately, The African American Freedom Trail Project places present-day struggles for racial justice in the context of historical movements for social change that originated, and found expression in greater Boston's African American and Black Native communities.
