UNTOLD STORIES: A HISTORY OF BLACK PEOPLE IN LYNN
Untold Stories: A History of Black People in Lynn is an upcoming collaborative exhibit between the Lynn Museum and members of Lynn’s Black community. Opening May 2021, this exhibit plans on exploring the history of Black people of Lynn from the colonial period to present day. Focusing on individuals, events, and thematic areas the exhibit will cover a wide variety of topics, including culture and identity, the lives of free and enslaved people, and the significant leadership roles Black Lynners have played in the community.
In order to tell this nuanced story of Black life in Lynn, the collaborative exhibition committee have chosen objects and photographs from the Lynn Museum’s collection. In addition, the committee has looked to the Lynn community to share their objects, photographs, and stories. The exhibition team will also use collected oral histories of Black Lynn residents, conducted by North Shore Community College students as part of their service learning at the Lynn Museum.
