This traveling exhibit, on loan from the Commonwealth Museum, will be on display through the month of February. Attendees will learn about one of the foremost 19th century black activists in Boston. Lewis Hayden began life as a slave in Kentucky and after an escape, settled in Boston 1849 and opened a clothing shop. A stop on the Underground Railroad, Hayden’s home on Beacon Hill sheltered over 100 fugitive slaves in their journey to freedom. During the Civil War Hayden helped recruit soldiers for the 54th Regiment and later served in the Massachusetts Legislature, advocating for women’s voting rights. Admission is free.
