Things to do at the Black New England Conference of 2023
From the New England Black Heritage Trail ( NEBHT ) of Portsmouth, NH and the Boston Black Heritage Tour Agency ( PTF version)
This year’s Black New England Conference conference is all about the arts and so are the pre-conference tours!
Join us on these exciting urban hikes:
The World Through African-American Eyes, with lead artist, L’Merchie Frazier
For this tour, participants will visit the African American Master Artists in Residency Program (AAMARP) studios and see the work of fourteen artists in residence. Participants will also get to meet some of the artists.
Noon. Meet at 76 Atherton Street in Jamaica Plain. Cost $15 ppBoston Jazz History Walking Tour, with tour guide, Laurel Schlegel
Join this tour to stand at the former site of Boston’s once-prominent jazz clubs and learn how they contributed to Boston’s rich but little-remembered jazz history. The tour was created by public history graduate students at Northeastern University using nontraditional skills and methods. The tour ends at Wally’s Cafe, the only remaining testament to Boston’s lively jazz history, for a tour and food.
Don’t forget to register for the conference before Sunday, September 17, to receive free parking in Boston. Space is limited, so register now.
You don’t have to attend the conference to join a tour.
