To do the good I expected: Robert Roberts - Domestic Servant, Author, Abolitionist

Development of a tour focused on the life, writing, and activism of Robert Roberts, a leader in Boston's free black community and a servant at Gore Place. The tour emphasizes the value of labor over the denigration of service and explores the relationship between work, life, and activism, and the challenge of trying to change the world while also surviving in it.
