Join us at the State Library of Massachusetts at noon on Thursday, February 8, to hear author Rosalyn D. Elder speak about her recent book Exploring the Legacy: People and Places of Significance, part of the African American Heritage in Massachusetts series.
Exploring the Legacy is both a tourist guide and a history book, providing details about 741 sites significant to African American heritage across the Commonwealth.
Author Rosalyn D. Elder is a registered architect and entrepreneur who founded and operated Treasured Legacy, an African American cultural boutique in Boston’s South End, as well as Jamaicaway Books, a multicultural bookstore, in Jamaica Plain.
Copies of Exploring the Legacy will be available for purchase and signing at the conclusion of Ms. Elder’s talk. To register, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Elder-SLM
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
