Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This online resource serves as an abridged version of the American Antiquarian Society's traveling exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere. The exhibition develops the story of the American silversmith and patriot as a versatile maker of prints and objects while also maintaining sight of his ambitions as a patriot. The story of Revere as a maker and an entrepreneur has been somewhat eclipsed by the popular image of him as a messenger, but the two narratives are in fact intertwined. All four sections of the exhibition are represented here by a selection of objects and related text aimed at providing context for the world in which Revere navigated as an artisan and entrepreneur in pre- and post-revolutionary America.

In this lecture, Nazera Sadiq Wright discusses how histories of black girlhood are often “buried” in literary genres less likely to be studied. To locate evidence of their lives, she explores the often uncatalogued signatures and inscriptions written in nineteenth-century black girls’ autograph albums to reveal the wide-ranging impact that early friendships, alliances, and associations had on black girls’ intellectual and political development.
