BPL & Artists for Humanity Collaboration
In celebration of Black History Month, Then & Now is a public art live-stream projection that honors the words of the abolitionists. Quotations from the Boston Public Library's Anti-Slavery Collection will be coupled with Artists for Humanity teen artwork proclaiming the continued journey for a better and more just world. Then & Now will be projected onto the Boston Public Library's facade and live-streamed on Saturday, February 27, 2021 (with a rain date of February 28).
The Associates is proud to have provided funding for the conservation and digitization of the BPL's Anti-Slavery Collection over the last decade. The Collection contains 40,000 pieces of correspondence, broadsides, newspapers, pamphlets, books, realia, and William Lloyd Garrison's personal copies of "The Liberator."
