Special Educator Preview – Wednesday, May 30 4:30 PM

The Maine State Museum invites all educators to a special preview of our newest exhibit

Malaga Island, Maine’s Forgotten Legacy

This powerful new exhibit uses historical photographs, documents, archaeological artifacts, and perspectives of present-day people to tell the story of the mixed-race community evicted from Malaga Island one hundred years ago.  Please join the education staff of the Maine State Museum to learn more about the educational programming that will accompany the exhibit including:

  • an in-depth gallery program;
  • live webcast discussions with exhibit designer, curator, archaeologists, and scholars;
  • additional teacher materials and training workshops exploring the themes of ethnicity, civil rights, social justice and much more

All educators are invited to stay for an evening lecture by Kate McBrien, exhibit curator at 6:30 PM.
