Preregistration is required for this event at cstinehistoricalsociety.org.

A talk via Zoom on the hidden stories of Castine’s African American population from enslavement to the early 20th century by CHS Executive Director Lisa Simpson Lutts.

The stories of Castine’s African and African American citizens have largely been ignored in the written histories of the town. Over the past few years, staff have researched the archival records to uncover these hidden stories. Attendees will learn about the earliest enslaved people who worked in Castine, as well as the stories of free black families who lived and worked in Castine while raising their children.
