As we observe Black History Month, it is useful to recall that Massachusetts was a slave state until 1783. Some of our Town’s leading citizens owned slaves and this presentation will provide information on that aspect of our past. The many hardworking black families that subsequently contributed to Uxbridge’s participating in the Industrial Revolution will also be examined.
This presentation is hosted by Uxbridge resident and local historian Mike Potaski.
In the event of inclement weather, this presentation will be rescheduled for Saturday, February 10.
Uxbridge Library - February 3rd, 2018 from 10am to 11am.
