In 2006 the first African American Governor of Massachusetts was elected to office. Listen to our podcast about that time. Boston's black community was established in 1638 when a group of Africans from Angola and African nations were brought here on a ship. These black men and women, enslaved by dominant rivals in West African states, were traded out to Portuguese, Dutch, English and French merchants before arriving in Boston. A communithy of them formed - Boston's first Black community, and it continues today.
