Black History Walking Tour of Mount Auburn Cemetery (Collins)

Black History Walking Tour of Mount Auburn Cemetery (Collins) In-Person

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL. Waitlist does not mean you have a seat. At this time, we are unable to accomodate additional participants. We hope to be able to offer similar events in the future.

Join us for a 1.5-hour educational walk to learn about the diverse history of Mount Auburn Cemetery and those who are buried there.

The Black men and women represented on Mount Auburn’s African American Heritage Trail are freedom seekers and reformers, lawyers and legislators, athletes and business owners, musicians and authors. Born in the 1800s, these individuals achieved success in politics, business, literature, and the arts. We will learn about the lives of multiple important individuals buried in the cemetery as we celebrate their life and legacy. 

Please note, this walk will venture on and off the paved path. 

Registration is mandatory. The waitlist means you do not have a reservation but will be contacted when a seat becomes available. 

If you have any questions, contact Lucy at LFlamm@CambridgeMA.gov or by phone at 617-349-4021.
