Special Exhibit - "From Sea to Shining Sea: Whalers of the African Diaspora"

The Museum is hosting a 2-year exhibition exploring and expounding on the role of African American mariners in whaling history, highlighting and bringing into perspective a significant time in American history for the general public.

As the first integrated industry and meritocracy in US history, the whaling industry was the largest employer of African Americans, with estimates that between one-quarter and one-third of all the American whaling crews were people of color.
