Member Morning: Black Voices Highlights TourFebruary 4, 2024, at 9:30 a.m.
Join fellow Museum Members on the first Sunday of every month for special Members-only tours of our galleries, special exhibitions, and historic neighborhood.
On Sunday, Feb. 4, at 9:30 a.m., join a Museum educator for a 60-minute Black Voices of the Revolution tour of the core galleries highlighting a diverse set of stories, experiences, and objects related to people of African descent during the American Revolution. Along the way, you’ll see a first edition of Phillis Wheatley’s Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral, learn about Elizabeth Freeman’s historic court case, consider what the engraving “No Slavery” on a Continental Army soldier’s musket meant, and discuss William Lee's role on campaign as Washington's enslaved valet. Through it all, you’ll have the opportunity to consider what words like freedom, liberty, and equality meant for different people within the Revolutionary era, and how these ideas continue to influence our lives today.
Our monthly Member Mornings are free for Museum Members to attend with advance registration. Not yet a Museum Member? Become a member today.
