EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
African Americans in the Maritime Trades with Dr. Mary Malloy

Monday October 21, 2019
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


From Colonial times to the twentieth century, men of African ancestry worked aboard Yankee ships, in every capacity from greenhand to Captain. The maritime trades depended on the Black workforce, and offered opportunities for merit-based advancement that were not available in other industries. In this illustrated lecture, Mary Malloy will trace the history of Black whalemen through documents and photographs.
