Salem is well known for the 1692 Witchcraft Trials. And many people may be aware of the great maritime period as well as the importance of the city in the American Revolution.
But did you know that Salem has a very rich Black history?
There have been several key individuals who made great strides in the community and major contributions to Salem and the state by influencing policy, establishing businesses and leading the abolitionist movement.
Join us Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. for our Salem Black History Show as we celebrate Black History month.
We will discuss the Remond Family, Charlotte Forten, Frederick Douglass, Charles Augustus Benson and more. Our special guest will be Doreen Wade from Salem United who will discuss her organization and her plans to establish a Black History museum in Salem.
The event is live and will feature a Q & A session at the end of the show. Pictures related to the discussion will also be shown by screen share and virtual background.
