Early Black Boston Digital Almanac

Partially supported by a NULab Seedling Grant.

Inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s “Poor Richard’s Almanack,” the Early Black Boston Digital Almanac is a collection of interesting and edifying archival material and digital exhibits about the vibrant Black communities of Boston during the 18th and 19th centuries. Material and exhibits are created by scholars, students, and interested members of the public and submitted to an editorial collective before publication.
