In One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia we see the power of words through the art of poetry. Take a turn at the mic and share your original work or a piece from your favorite poet. If you just want to hear what others have to say, that’s okay too.
Meghan Howey, director of the Great Bay Archaeological Survey, explores how British colonization in Coastal New Hampshire in the 17th and 18th centuries led to the commodification of land and everything upon it. She'll look at connections the project has discovered between colonial wealth and the dispossession of Indigenous lands, as well as the dispossession of the bodies and labor of African peoples.
