Malaga Island: A Presentation & PHC Annual Meeting

5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

14 Maine St.
Brunswick, ME 04011
United States

Many, if not most, of you are aware of the story of Malaga Island, and the injustice surrounding the people who lived, and were forcibly removed from, there.

But did you know that the exposure of that injustice in many ways started at Pejepscot History Center two decades ago? That’s when Kate McBrien served as curator at PHC (and also interim director for a time) and began delving into the story of Malaga. She expanded considerably on her research while at the Maine State Museum where she curated a ground-breaking exhibit.

Mark your calendars for what promises to be a powerful presentation and kick-off to our 2024 annual theme of Crime and Punishment. The evening begins with a short annual business meeting (for members only) to elect new trustees and officers. We’ll then move into a reception at 6PM, followed by the program, both of which are open to all.

Tickets: $12 PHC Members / $20 General Public. Register online HERE.

Kate McBrien serves as the Maine State Archivist, overseeing the archival preservation and management of state records at the Maine State Archives in Augusta. Before this role, Kate worked at the Maine Historical Society and Maine State Museum in their curatorial and public engagement departments. At the State Museum, she researched and curated the award-winning exhibit “Malaga Island, Fragmented Lives” about the Malaga Island community.
