Boston African American National Historic Site

Its hard to imagine that one can find a national park right in the heart of a city; yet today that is exactly what SCIP did. We started off our week with a visit to the Boston African American National Historic Site. First on our agenda for the day was an inspirational talk given by Superintendent Cassius Cash and Site Manager Terry Brown. They gave us great advice on how to become a future leader in whatever endeavors we to choose to follow in life. We then received a tour of historic Beacon Hill and learned about the role of African Americans in Boston in the 1800’s. I learned so much more about the abolitionist movement. The courage and motivation that some of these people had, such as John J. Smith is unbelievable. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Boston African American National Historic site.
