Beverly Morgan-Welch Museum of Afro-American History
The Massachusetts Historical Society hosts a lecture given by the Museum of Afro-American History's executive director, Beverly Morgan-Welch, on the role that the Museum of Afro-American History's meeting house has played in Massachusetts history. Beverly Morgan-Welch, a graduate of Smith College, is executive director of the Museum of Afro-American History, Inc., the oldest African-American history museum in New England. Morgan-Welch created the museum's popular Underground Railroad Overnight Adventures and oversaw acquisition of the Florence Higginbotham House on Nantucket. She is on the Board of Directors of the Boston History Collaborative and is a member of both the Colonial Society of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Historical Society.
The Society is a 300 year old major research library and manuscript repository. Its holdings encompass millions of rare and unique documents and artifacts vital to the study of American history, many of them irreplaceable national treasures. A few examples include several imprints of the Declaration of Independence, and the pen Abraham Lincoln used to sign the Emancipation Proclamation.
