Transgressing the Color Line: Depictions of Free Blacks in the Popular Press

  • Concord Museum 200 Lexington Road Concord, MA, 01742 United States (map)

I used images and artficacts from Concord Museum's permanent collection as a point of departure for a discussion on the depictions of free and freed African Americans. This talk was inspired by their "Fresh Goods: Shopping for Clothing in a New England Town, 1750-1900" exhibition.
