“Revolutions in Thought” visits the Museum of African American History

The “Revolutions in Thought” Seminar for Freshman” visited The Museum of African American History on Beacon Hill on October 4. This is the site of the oldest  African American church building in the nation, the birthplace of the American abolitionist movement, and home to an exhibit of photos of Frederick Douglass — the most photographed American of the nineteenth century. Our trip enriched student understanding of the revolution in thought that led to the condemnation and abolition of slavery.
