The Robbins House: History & Race
October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Robbins House, a two-room farmhouse located near the North Bridge, invites us all to honor Concord’s African American History. This Concord Festival of Authors event features historians who authored the Robbins House pamphlet series, which underscores the need to communicate about race and history in ways that “reflect the humanity of the millions of black men, women and children who claimed their personhood, in various ways large and small, despite the laws and systems that bound them.” The conversation will explore how throughout American history, people of African descent have demanded the right to define their racial identity through terms that reflect their proud and complex history.
Event takes place at the Concord Free Public Library, 129 Main Street, Concord
