Reflecting Attucks is a virtual exhibit that examines the memory of Crispus Attucks, a man of African & Native descent who was the first to die in the Boston Massacre, an event now regarded as the start of the American Revolution.
Revolutionary Spaces offers all of the content from our current exhibit on Attucks inside Boston’s Old State House, just across the street from the site of the Boston Massacre. We are folding in digital exclusive content that we couldn’t fit on the walls of the exhibit, and holding online panels to provide a space to come together and reflect on what Attucks can mean for all of us today.
We hope you’ll join us for this journey. Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media to keep up to date on the latest content releases and panels. If you are in Boston, you can buy tickets to see the entire exhibit at the Old State House. And if you have comments or questions about the project, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
