Well, now that it’s semi-official… This summer I will be doing weekly/biweekly tours of Malaga Island (and I’m like… getting paid! Novel idea!). I will be giving a tour of the walking trails, some of the ecology, but mostly talking about the African American community that lived there in the late 19th century until 1912, and talking about how archaeology fits into it all :) I’m not sure of the logistics yet, as I’m still figuring it out with Maine Coast Heritage Trust, but I’m really excited for an opportunity to talk about African American archaeology and history in the northeast. 
To learn more about Malaga Island, and the atrocities committed by the state of Maine to the African American and racially mixed community there, go to malagaislandmaine.org
