I started working here at The Music Hall a little over a year ago and during my first week I was able to take one of our famed Historic Tours.

African Burying Ground Celebration: Q&A With Chris Dwyer

The following Q&A with African Burying Ground committee member and Portsmouth City Councilor Chris Dwyer, is the final interview with three of the individuals who have volunteered their time and expertise to bring the Portsmouth African Burying Ground project to fruition with a Memorial Day weekend celebration taking place May 20 to May 23.
