Feb 21 program The Black Community of Colonial Dorchester and Boston

In the 1650s, Sebastian Kane was a landowner in Dorchester. He was also a person of color. Local historian Alex Goldfeld will present what is known about Kane and other people of African descent in a predominantly white colony. Goldfeld will use his original research on Boston’s “New Guinea” neighborhood to explore black life over three centuries ago.
