Please join the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum for a lecture and discussion with explorer J. Robert Harris, Chair of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee at the Explorers Club in New York City.
Wednesday September 7, 2022, at 7:00 pm in Kresge Auditorium in the Visual Arts Center.
Harris’ lecture titled Sambo or Superman: The Rocky Road to Recognition is a presentation about Black explorers.
Recently, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee launched the Society of Forgotten Explorers. The Society seeks to honor unknown, lesser-known, or unsung explorers from underrepresented communities and ethnicities, and tell their stories. These are men and women who are living or deceased, with emphasis on indigenous as well as female explorers.
In the spring of 2022, the four Inughuit hunters from Greenland who accompanied Robert Peary and Matthew Henson to the North Pole in 1909: Ootah, Egingwah, Seegloo, and Ooqueah, were admitted as charter members. Arctic Museum director, Susan Kaplan and museum curator, Genny LeMoine participated in the event.
