In this livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP invites audiences to explore the mind of an escaped laborer and mariner of late 18th-Century Boston. Living Historian Jon F. Rice embodies the vigor of Crispus Attucks, one of some 3,000 mariners living in Boston; a seaside town of approximately 15,000 inhabitants. As with his fellow townsmen, Attucks did not enjoy enfranchisement; granted to white, male, property owners, and was subjugated by the laws that governed his life.
Jon F. Rice is a Chicago-based professional historian, researcher and tri-racial interpreter. He obtained a PhD in American History from Northern Illinois University and has performed for the Chicago Historical Society; in Boston, as an interpreter for the Freedom Trail Foundation; and as a Wampanoag elder at the Wampanoag Homesite, at Plimoth Patuxet (formerly Plimoth Plantation). Rice, who descends from the Choctaw Heritage, delves into the lives and eras of his portrayals to create dialogues that encompass the time in which they lived.
