 A Town Divided: Framingham, Slavery, and the Civil War 

Thursday, June 17, 2021

Despite the fact that slavery had been effectively abolished since the 1780s, Framingham, like many other New England towns and cities, maintained a complicated relationship to slavery and abolition throughout the 19th century. For this year’s celebration of Juneteenth, join Mary McNeil of the Framingham History Center for a discussion about Framingham’s historical ties to enslavement, including in the state of Texas, where Juneteenth originated. Along the way, learn about related objects in the Framingham History Center’s archives. Register at bit.ly/FPL-Events by 5pm on June 17.
