“Creating Community: White Enterprise and Black Society”
Sankofa Tour Guide: Angela Matthews
Institutionalized slavery in the Americas provided immense wealth and material culture to many European immigrants and their descendants in the Americas, as Portsmouth’s house museums bear witness. This tour brings into focus an economic system dependent upon the unpaid labor of enslaved African captives and their descendants who, against the odds, created one of this country’s oldest Black communities.
