Learn about one of the foremost 19th century Black activists in Boston. Lewis Hayden began life as a slave in Kentucky and after a daring escape, settled in Boston 1849 and opened a clothing shop. A stop on the Underground Railroad, Hayden’s home on Beacon Hill sheltered over 100 fugitive slaves in their journey to freedom. During the Civil War Hayden helped recruit soldiers for the heroic 54th Regiment and later served in the Massachusetts Legislature, advocating tirelessly for women’s voting rights.
The exhibit is open Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00. Free admission.
