Northshore Magazine: 5 Places to Celebrate and Honor Black History Month on the North Shore

February 3, 2023

The history and accomplishments of Black people are too often lost in the mainstream conversation. Thankfully, Black History Month offers us plentiful opportunities to learn more about these neglected stories- and think about ways we can better acknowledge and respect them all year long. With that goal in mind, we've collected five places to start your education- and celebration- of Black history on the North Shore.

Gloucester's Cape Ann Museum has planned events for children and adults alike in observation of Black History Month. On February 18, local researcher Lise Breen and Professor Kabria Baumgartner will give a talk sharing the stories of three local African-descended women with Gloucester ties and talk about how to unearth and reinterpret the often-neglected histories of Black people.
