A talk via Zoom on Castine’s African American Jackson family by local author and historian, Georgia Zildjian.
During this talk, George Zildjian will explore the legacy of a life-long African American resident of Castine, Mary Tyler Jackson (1850-1917). This remarkable woman’s story forms the center point of a fascinating two-generation family saga. Orphaned and alone at just 14, Mary persevered through the often incongruous circumstances of her youth, becoming a beloved member of her community. Join us as we chart the journey of Mary Jackson’s life and her impact on the living history of Castine.
