Mission Statement

Formed in 2006, Hidden Brookline is a project of the Office of Diversity and Community Relations. Our mission is to bring to light the history of enslaved people of African descent who lived and worked in Brookline, and to educate the public as to the involvement that Brookline residents had with regard to slavery and the abolitionist movement.

The Hidden Brookline Committee collaborates with other town organizations such as the Brookline Preservation Commission, the Brookline Cemetery Trustees, as well as private groups such as the Brookline Historical Society and other organizations and individuals locally and regionally.

The Hidden Brookline Committee consists of members of the Human Relations / Youth Resources Commission as well as members of the public.
