Join Asata Radcliffe, curator of A Convenient Soldier: The Black Guards of Maine to learn more about an important but little known chapter of Maine history. The Black Guards were African American army soldiers sent to guard the railways of Maine from terrorist attacks during WWII, from 1941-1945. This exhibit looks at the day-to-day lives of these loyal citizen-soldiers who stood watch during a time of a racially segregated country and military.
Cost: Free and open to the public. Registration required.
Location: online via Zoom, limited to 500 attendees.
