During the 18th and 19th centuries, Boston’s free African American community led the nation in the movement to end slavery and to achieve equal rights. These remarkable patriots established businesses, founded organizations, created schools, built houses of worship and homes near the iconic African Meeting House and along Underground Railroad routes on the north slope of Beacon Hill.
