Recovering Black History in the Monadnock Region, A Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration

January 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am


The Historical Society of Cheshire County relies on historical resources to communicate local history. The documents, photographs, and artifacts preserved in its archives have led to hundreds of talks, workshops, walking tours, exhibits, school resources, and publications. Yet, there are gaps in the collections. There are stories missing from our local history, memories not preserved. The “Recovering Black History in the Monadnock Region” project is filling in some of those gaps using citizen archivists. In her presentation, director of education Jennifer Carroll will share more about this project, including some initial discoveries and future goals.
