In his 1829 Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World, the influential Black abolitionist David Walker wrote, “America is as much our country, as it is yours.” Yet, the conflict between belonging and excluding threads through our nation’s history from its beginning. On Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Old North Church & Historic Site will host a virtual panel discussion about what it means to belong in America with Boston historians Kabria Baumgartner and Jessica C. Linker, both of Northeastern University, and Jonathan Chu, of the University of Massachusetts Boston. Old North Foundation Executive Director Nikki Stewart will moderate the final event of the three-part series on Walker. Prior participation in Old North’s digital talks is not required. The online event is accessible with a donation of any amount to support the Old North Foundation’s virtual and on-site programs, which aim to inspire children and adults alike to consider the ways in which they can build a more just and equitable world.
