Dr. Baumgartner and Dr. Elizabeth Duclos-Orsello have spent the past two years visiting historic repositories throughout Essex County, including the Cape Ann Museum, to collect, compile, and catalog the rich history of African Americans in this area. Their report, African Americans in Essex County, was funded by the National Park Service and will be released later this spring.
In this virtual discussion, learn about the impetus behind the project, what they have learned, and their ten recommendations for how local individuals and institutions can celebrate and support African American History in Essex County.
