Exhibit | Hidden in Plain Sight: Stories of Black Lowell

Urban renewal, displacement, and gentrification destroyed Lowell's historically Black neighborhoods. Today, the city's Black residents live in many neighborhoods, persevering and contributing to the strength and vibrancy of Lowell. The Free Soil Arts Collective, a Lowell-based nonprofit with a mission to amplify voices of color through the arts, has produced an original book, and exhibit at the Lowell National Park Visitor’s Center that reflect on the history and current reality of Lowell's Black residents, as they reclaim and reaffirm their shared heritage and experiences. This is exhibit is free and open to the public 7 days a week, from 10am-5pm. To reserve a guided tour, visit https://bit.ly/freesoiltour To purchase the accompanying book, click here: https://glcf.fcsuite.com/erp/donate/list/event?event_date_id=2122.
