Legacy of Courage: Black Changemakers in Massachusetts Past, Present, Future
Legacy of Courage: Black Changemakers in Massachusetts Past, Present, Future chronicles the actions taken by African American changemakers over four centuries of confronting racial injustice as they aspired to a freer and more equal society. This film uses archival sources, animation sequences, and interviews with scholars and youth activists to tell an inspiring story.
Do you think that the northern states were totally anti-slavery? This movie will lead us to question the narratives about Massachusetts history. Learn how Massachusetts played a role in the huge industry that was slavery.
