Hidden in Plain Sight

Hidden in Plain Sight: Stories of Black Lowell

Hidden in Plain Sight: Stories of Black Lowell, is a storytelling project chronicling the lived experiences of Black people in Lowell, MA. Through intimate interviews with Black Lowellians, we have shed a light on an often under-explored narrative of Lowell’s history. 

This project is supported, in part by the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, Lowell Cultural Council, and Merrimack Repertory Theatre.
