'Framing Mass Killings' Exhibit at Old State House
Revolutionary Spaces’ new exhibit at the Old State House, Framing Mass Killings, explores how the words we use to describe mass killings in American history affect whether and how we remember them.
How did the incident on March 5, 1770, come to be known as the “Boston Massacre” rather than another word used to describe politically and socially motivated mass killings?
Visit today to examine the use of words like massacre, mass shooting, battle, riot, genocide, and slaughter and the ideas, meanings, and feelings these words evoke in you.
Visitors will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on other mass killings in American history.
Open daily at the Old State House.
Entrance to this exhibit is included in the cost of admission.
