Mapping the Historic Lumbee Community in Baltimore
Ashley Minner's Spotlight! lecture
Friday, November 8, 2019 · Noon - 1 PM
Following World War II, thousands of Lumbee Indians moved from rural North Carolina to Baltimore City, seeking employment and a better quality of life. They formed a large satellite community on the east side of town, referred to as “the reservation” in its heyday. Through ethnography and archival research, and in collaboration with elders, Ashley Minner is mapping this historic Lumbee community and developing a walking tour, in order to preserve its stories for present and future generations. Please join us on Friday, 11/8/2019 during free hour in the Library Gallery to hear Ashley talk about her project!
