Old Colony History Museum
September’s Talk: : “Our Town/Nha Vida” Cape Verdean Oral History Project presented by Sonia Pacheco, Social Sciences Librarian, UMass Dartmouth
Join us to learn something new every month! Our Talks will feature presentations by local authors, academics, business owners, and history buffs in our Gallery.
The project, “Our Town/Nha Vida” (Our Town/My Life) interviewed Cape Verdean Americans who are multigenerational or first-generation immigrants, of various ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. Their personal experiences and stories provide a more inclusive understanding of their place in Massachusetts. The project is important because it provides Massachusetts residents with concrete examples of how Cape Verdeans have added to the state’s economic, cultural, and social fabric. One of the project’s goals is to encourage audiences to learn and grow in their knowledge of multicultural Massachusetts. This presentation will outline the project, and provide a brief history of Cape Verdeans in Dartmouth and the surrounding areas.
These Talks are all free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served at 5:30 and the presentations will begin at 6:00 pm.
