Harvard Square Faith Communities and the Legacy of Slavery: Landscape of Slavery Tours 

  • Date: Sunday, August 13, 2023
  • Time: 12:00pm2:00pm EDT
  • Location: Gellert Garden at Radcliffe, 10 Garden St.

(Meet at the fountain near the corner of Garden St. and Appian Way, between First Church and Christ Church.)

Drawing from the work of the Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery Initiative, this six-stop tour engages with the local geography of African and Indigenous enslavement in words, silence, and stillness. Join us as we learn about those who were wrongly oppressed, enslaved, and buried here, but whose dignity and humanity we aim to acknowledge and honor during this exploration.

Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water and sunscreen, and grab a bite between our 10:00 a.m. worship services and the noon tour. The tour is almost 2 hours.

Please register here.
