Duxbury, like all Northern towns, has a complicated relationship with the institution of slavery. During Colonial days, enslaved people lived and worked in this community. After slavery ended in Massachusetts in 1783, Duxbury’s economic ties to Southern slavery continued. Come learn with us, as DRHS Archivist and Historian Carolyn Ravenscroft explores the lives of the enslaved in Duxbury and the myriad ways that Duxbury’s 19th Century wealth was tied to enslaved labor.

Donations are optional but always encouraged. Please RSVP with the number of attendees. Ample parking is available at the library.
