NEWSLETTER February 2009

Dear Members and Friends of the Bahamas Historical Society,

First, we must apologise for sending this newsletter so late in the month. It took us longer than usual to confirm the next meeting, and we have experienced some computer problems, too. (This is why the formatting is slightly different than usual.) Nonetheless, we are pleased to share the information below with you.

NEXT MEETING: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26TH, 2009, 6:00PM

PRESENTER: ERIN GREENE

TOPIC: THE HISTORY OF THE RAINBOW ALLIANCE OF THE BAHAMAS

LOCATION: MUSEUM OF THE BAHAMAS HISTORICAL SOCIETY,
SHIRLEY STREET & ELIZABETH AVENUE

The meeting is free to members of the Bahamas Historical Society as well as the interested public.

Last Meetings – In January, the Society hosted three speakers:

  • Ward Minnis presented his research on the 1970s radio soap opera, The Fergusons of Farm Road. Columnist Larry Smith wrote an article about the presentation that we would like to share with you, especially if you did not get a chance to attend the metting: http://www.bahamapundit.com/2009/01/the-fergusons-of-farm-roada-sociocultural-perspective-on-a-turbulent-era.html
  • Dr. Munir Rashad told us about the history of Islam in the Bahamas. The Society did record this meeting on video, and we hope that we will be able to make this available through our website soon.
  • Dr. Peter T. Dalleo presented his research on Afro-Bahamian sailors in the Union Navy during the U.S. Civil War. Another columnist, Charo R. Walker, wrote an article about this presentation. Again, we want to share this with you: http://blackfood.org/store/?p=102

The Bahamas Historical Society thanks Andrea P. Major of the AMMC for these photographs!
