The SLAVE TRADE IN MAINE

Updated: Apr 21

Patricia Q. Wall, author of Lives of Consequence: Blacks in Early Kittery & Berwick in the Massachusetts Province of Maine presented an enlightening program November 3, 2021. Wall's meticulous research blows apart the myth that were only a few people of color in Maine - there were hundreds of Africans, African Americans, Native Americans, and mixed-race people. Wall also disabuses us of the myth that slaves in New England were well treated. Borrow or buy the book - you will not be disappointed.
