Museums Are Not Neutral. Black Lives Matter. Re-visit:The Royall House and Slave Quarters in Medford

As one of the only remaining freestanding quarters where enslaved people lived and worked in the North, the museum bears witness to their lives, to the intertwined stories of wealth and bondage in pre-Revolutionary Massachusetts, and to the resistance and political and legal activism of enslaved and free Black people in the eighteenth century.

The Royall House and Slave Quarters is committed to telling the history of slavery and freedom while highlighting how the legacy of enslavement creates systemic inequalities today.
