The Maritime History of the Cape Verde Islands, 1498-1904 | Dec 17

Michael P. Dyer is a Senior Maritime Historian of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

In this talk, he explores how the islands of the Atlantic figured prominently in the American maritime industries, with a particular focus on the last days of the industry when Cape Verdean and Azorean mariners assumed a much more significant profile in the ownership and management of New Bedford whalers. Their stories are synonymous with the last days of the industry.

A Q&A session will follow the talk.

When: Thursday, December 17, 5:30 p.m.

Where: Uphams Corner Branch of the Boston Public Library
500 Columbia Road
