Salem State University has cancelled Being Black in the 19th Century: Charlotte Forten and the Redmonds of Salem, Massachusettes Event

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Salem State University has decided to cancel this event scheduled for later this month.

Although we understand that this decision may cause inconvenience or disappointment for our alumni and friends who were planning to participate, the health and well-being of our Salem State community members is our first priority.

Please reach out to the alumni relations office at or at 978.542.7530 with any questions.

The university has created a Coronavirus preparedness website where you can learn more about the steps the university is taking.
