Our 544 square foot historic house in Concord jars visitors’ experience by presenting the Black history of America’s founding. Our success in spreading these messages has resulted in a local previously all-white elite private boys’ school “bequeathing” a 500 pound sugar plantation ‘slave bell’ to our historic site. Through sharing our recent brochure publications, we seek to elicit the emotions, intentions and history of this “gift” by connecting with sights, sounds and touch to explore how the bell can help explain America’s racial wealth gap in New England.
