Out of the Shadows: Enslavement and Emancipation

Sankofa Tour Guide: Kevin Mitchell

Out of the Shadows Walking Tour, Black Heritage Trail of NH
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.
