During the 19th and 20th 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 and created schools. Their houses of worship, homes, schools, and Underground Railroad sites make up Boston’s Black Heritage Trail®.
Come enjoy a classic and hysterical film on the Dudley big screen, a screen the size of a large wall. Givat Halfon Eina Ona, 1976 (Halfon Hill doesn't answer) is one of the best known and most quoted from movies of the Israeli film archive. Mediterranean catering will be provided for dinner.
