Save the Date! Harriet Jacobs Bicentennial & African American Heritage Trail Launch
Among those now buried at Mount Auburn are authors, journalists, jurists, lawyers, politicians, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs, activists, and reformers that help to illustrate the African American experience in Boston and beyond in the 19th and 20th centuries. This February, the Friends of Mount Auburn will launch an interpretive trail to celebrate the lives and legacies of fourteen individuals significant in telling this story. Join us on February 11th as we launch this new Heritage Trail and pay special tribute to one of the figures highlighted on the Trail: freedom-seeker, abolitionist, and author Harriet Jacobs, who was born 200 years ago on February 11th in 1813.
More details for this event, including the starting time, will be announced in early 2013. Please check our website or call (617) 607-1980 for additional information.
