11/3 Free Webinar, The Slave Trade in Maine - Native Americans and Blacks

Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., Hiram Historical Society hosts Patricia Wall, author of Lives of Consequence: Blacks in Early Kittery and Berwick, who discusses how the shortage of labor in New England led to enslaving Native Peoples and, when that proved insufficient, cheap labor from Africa.


Kittery, Maine was a major port - are you shocked? Did you know that there were enslaved blacks in our region? Examples in Hiram and Fryeburg. Learn more at this free webinar.
