The Lynn Black History Story Share 2!
April 6, 2019
Share YOUR Story
Our first Story Share was so successful, we have planned another one for Saturday, April 6th! So, if you were unable to make it to the first one, you will have another chance to share your photos, documents, and stories. We will scan each item and return them to you and they will be added to our collection and possibly used for our collaborative Summer 2019 exhibit,
Untold Stories: A History of Black People in Lynn.
If you have something to share but can’t make it that day, please email Sue@Lynnmuseum.org and we will set something up.
We need your photos and stories to make this happen.
Anyone with a connection to the Black community in Lynn is encouraged to attend.
We are looking to tell the true story of the history and of the Black experience in Lynn and need your help.
