Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail

People of African origin or descent have been part of Portsmouth since at least 1645.
This waterfront was an entry port for enslaved people arriving in New Hampshire during the 1600s and 1700s.
Ships brought black children and adults directly from Africa and from the West Indies or southern colonies.
These "servants" worked in Portsmouth houses, craft shops, farms, and at sea.
By 1800, slavery was ending in New Hampshire.
Black people continued to work this port into the 20th century, at the Naval Shipyard and as members of the armed forces.
