The Lowell Sun reported on reignited efforts to build an Abolitionist Park in Fitchburg after Fitchburg State University made the lot at 42-50 Snow Street available for the park site.
The article includes an interview with David Thibault-Munoz, the Co-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Friends of Fitchburg Abolitionist Park:
Thibault-Munoz said the abolitionist park is important because it recalls an crucial moment in our history. “It’s important to know that people here were fighting for the rights of people who didn’t have freedom,” he said. “The only thing we have commemorated in the city are wars. We want people to know that abolitionists were also patriots who put their lives on the line for the cause of freedom.”
