OPEN DAILY 9:30 to 5
Associate Professor of Africana Studies and English, Tess Chakkalakal, will discuss her collaboration with the Maine Maritime Museum in teaching the Introduction to Africana Studies in which students, for the first time in the history of the course, curated an exhibit at the Museum on the subject of ships and slavery. Professor Chakkalakal will provide insight on class conversations connecting African American literature, multiplicity of perspectives, and the challenges of exhibiting these narratives in a gallery. This event is FREE, but preregistration is required.
Truly, we couldn't do what we do without a phenomenal group of volunteers and we can't wait to showcase these incredible people. During this recruitment fair, the Percy & Small Shipyard will be open for demonstrations, and our staff and volunteers will be present to share the many different ways you can be a part of the museum. We have opportunities for just about everyone: outdoors or indoors; active or more stationary; be a part of a group or fly solo; work with the public directly or operate behind the scenes. Have you ever considered volunteering at Maine Maritime Museum?
