On July 16th 2022 History Cambridge gathered with Black Coral and members of the community on the front lawn of the Hooper-Lee-Nichols House to celebrate our art installation “Forgotten Souls of Tory Row: Remembering the Enslaved People of Brattle Street”. Included in the celebration were a libation ceremony, readings by L’Merchie Frazier and a drum invocation by Cornell Coley.
