Out of the Shadows: Enslavement and Emancipation
Sankofa Tour Guide: Kevin Mitchell
Daily life for enslaved children and adults in New England was variable according to the occupations of their owners and the changing seasons of the year. Captives became taxable property with few human rights, yet each individual was endowed with a particular range of abilities and talents, with different experiences and opportunities shaping their lives before, during and after enslavement. This tour will reveal some of these personalities.
Tours are $20 pp
or pay cash onsite.
Unless otherwise noted, all tours meet at 2 pm at the flagpole on Marcy Street, across from Strawbery Banke Museum.
