Seeds of Freedom: The Kenrick Family Story
The Kenrick family has lived in Newton since the 17th century. We pick up their story when John Kenrick buys a house and farm from the Durants in 1790. John Kenrick publishes The Horrors of Slavery, the first book on the topic in the U.S., and creates the largest and longest running tree and plant nursery in New England. But what will happen when his son starts a large mulberry plantation in Virginia, and the only people available to work are enslaved African Americans? Talk with visuals
