Oral History Collection Event for Black History Project of Lexington – Saturday, February 12, 2022

Join the Association of Black Citizens of Lexington from 10 am to Noon at Lexington Historical Society Archives & Research Center (1332 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington MA)

Everyone has a story. Will you share yours with us?

Association of Black Citizens of Lexington (ABCL) and the Lexington Historical Society are teaming up again to document the history of the Black experience in town. Our inaugural event was in 2020.

Collecting oral histories, photographs, documents, and artifacts will help historians build a clear and complete picture of Lexington’s multiracial history.

On February 12th, we will be collecting stories and scanning photographs at the Archives and Research Center at Munroe Tavern.

If you or someone you know is interested in contributing to this project, please contact the ABCL Historian at historian@abclex.org to schedule an appointment.

All participants must provide proof of vaccination prior to having their appointment confirmed.

Only those with appointments will be allowed into the building during the event.
