Add this Event to Calendar 10/07/2019 12:00 AM 10/26/2019 12:00 AM Encore Presentation of Yankee Baleeiros! The Shared Legacies of Luso and Yankee Whalers

This traveling exhibit will again visit the APL in honor of the NEA Big Read. The exhibition celebrates the interwoven Luso-American stories of the Azorean, Cape Verdean, and Brazilian communities to the United States from early immigration in the 18th century to through the latter half of the century. These distinct cultures are linked historically through heritage, language, and the pursuit of opportunity afforded by the international network of Yankee whaling.

Traveling exhibit provided by the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
