  1. Boston is my home. I grew up here. African Americans lived on the ‘back-side’ of what is now called Beacon Hill. B.U. is my alma mater. I am very excited about what I will learn about my ancestry. My family is part of the African American community that moved from Beacon Hill to West Newton. Myrtle Baptist Church still exists and continues to preserve our family history and heritage. Looking forward to this timely learning opportunity. Thank you!
