    Traces of the Trade: Portsmouth’s connection to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade

     
    A presentation by JerriAnne Boggis, Executive Director, Black Heritage Trial of New Hampshire

    Institutionalized slavery in Colonial America provided immense wealth and material culture to many European immigrants and their descendants.

    Portsmouth, like Newport RI flourished as a shipbuilding city and like Newport, the town grew wealthy from the trade of kidnapped Africans and its secondary goods. This conversation with JerriAnne Boggis, Executive Director of the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire, will focus on Portsmouth shipbuilding history and the towns economic dependent upon the international slave trade.

    JerriAnne was previously Director of Diversity Programs & Community Outreach at the University of New Hampshire. She was named by the New Hampshire Humanities Council as one of the 40 most influential New Hampshirites who have vastly enriched human understanding.
