Malaga Island monumentIn 1912, the State of Maine evicted a community of African American and white residents from their homes on Malaga Island, just off the coast of Phippsburg, ME. Racism, economic struggles, and eugenics all led to the devastation of this community. Join TML and Maine State Archivist Kate McBrien as we explore the history behind this important story that was hidden for so many years. All are welcome.
