See Shadows Fall North

See all news

Portsmouth, Milford, Canaan, and many other NH towns have been home to natives of Africa and African Americans for centuries, but their stories have often been left out of official histories. Shadows Fall North, a documentary produced by the UNH’s Center for the Humanities in collaboration with Atlantic Media Productions, focuses on the recovery of Black history in NH by two extraordinary women, historians and activists Valerie Cunningham and JerriAnne Boggis. Shadows Fall North, supported in part by New Hampshire Humanities, explores these questions and more.
