August 14 Speaker Series: Historian Bob Greene

This Sunday, August 14 at 2 PM, Bob Greene will discuss Black history in Maine.

Retired journalist and award-winning historian Bob Greene will describe Maine’s Black history, which began in the state’s long-ago story. His own family history extends back eight generations, to Maine in the 1700s.

He was born in Portland and, after college, became a newsman. For years, he covered both natural disasters and sports.

Later, in Maine again as a retiree, he dug deeply into his own background in Cumberland County, which led him to genealogical research and Black history. He now teaches a course on it at the University of Southern Maine’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Change to Museum Hours

The Alfred Shaker Museum will now be open on Saturdays from 1-4 PM and other days by appointment.

To make an appointment to visit, contact us.
