Celebrate the African-American patriots that played a vital role in the start of the American Revolution in Boston and in the formation of our country. Led by an 18th-century costumed guide, visitors view history through the eyes of African-American revolutionaries such as Crispus Attucks, Phillis Wheatley, Prince Hall, Peter Salem, and more. Experience the historic events of the American Revolution and the immense contributions of black Bostonians as they unfold along Boston’s historic red-lined path.
