Black History Knowledge Quest

Embark on the Quest!

In celebration of Black History Month, Medfield Together invites you to join our 2nd Annual Black History Knowledge Quest. In this family friendly activity, Questers are challenged to visit various locations throughout downtown Medfield to find Black history portals. Each portal features a past or present figure in Black history and highlights their achievements and contributions.

The Portals

If you are to accept this Quest, you will be exploring downtown Medfield where you will find 15 Portals (locations) with a placard featuring someone of significance to Black history – past and present.
