Welcome

The Drinking Gourd Project, Inc. is a Concord-based nonprofit organization focused on raising awareness of Concord’s African, African-American, and Antislavery history from the 17th through the 19th centuries. The Drinking Gourd Project’s mission is to reveal the little known African American history of Concord and its regional and national importance. Our vision is to inspire conversation, expand understanding and contribute to a better society.

Our goals are:

  1. To unearth and disseminate the stories of Concord’s earliest African Americans (particularly residents of African descent in the 19th century Robbins House);
  2. To create educational resources based upon the experience of Concord’ early African Americans; and
  3. To promote dialogue about social justice.
