Peter McEachern: Black History in Rural Connecticut: A Forgotten History

Saturday January 5, 4:00 PM
Scoville Memorial Library

In 2016 Peter McEachern discovered a trove of photographs in the attic of his newly-purchased home. Dating from the 1930s through the 1970s, the photos revealed fascinating details and provided enticing clues about the history of the Black experience in Salisbury. McEachern developed a course on Black History in Rural Connecticut at the Salisbury School, which in turn led to a well-attended exhibit at the Salisbury Association in the spring of 2018. His talk will discuss the photos and what has been learned through following leads since their discovery. Co-sponsored by the Scoville Memorial Library and the Salisbury Association Historical Society.
