Share YOUR Story 
 

The Lynn Museum is excited to announce that we are planning an exhibit for the summer of 2019 entitled:
Untold Stories: A History of Black People in Lynn.
This is a collaborative exhibit, the purpose of which is to tell the long untold story of
Black people and Black life in Lynn from the colonial period to the present day. Story Share is a FREE community event to document Black history in Lynn by digitizing family photos and stories.
Anyone with a connection to the Black community in Lynn is encouraged to attend, whether long time Lynners or new immigrants. Bring items (photos, flyers, letters, posters, objects) that tell your family story! We will scan photos, photograph objects, and/or record your story electronically. Everything will be added to the Lynn Museum’s digital collection and returned to you. Please bring original, unframed photographs, if possible.
Potential topics: Family, civil rights, work, spiritual/religious, schools, neighborhoods, social/cultural, and anything else you want to share! 

If you have any questions, 
please contact Judith at judith@lynnmuseum.org or Sue@lynnmuseum.org or at 781-581-6200.
If you are unable to make it Saturday, but have something you would like to contribute, please contact us. 
See you there!
