Reflecting Attucks is a virtual exhibit that examines the memory of Crispus Attucks, a man of African & Native descent who was the first to die in the Boston Massacre, an event now regarded as the start of the American Revolution. This exhibit is not a biography of Attucks the man. Like many 18th-century figures, he did not leave behind a long paper trail telling his story in his own words. However, we have vivid stories of his actions and the time in which he lived. Reflecting Attucks is a story about how Americans turned the memory of Attucks into a powerful symbol of the courage and sacrifice needed to achieve change.
