Join us as we shed light on these historical figures to learn about their contributions and unique roles in our maritime history.

Three African American men: a musician, a captain, and an explorer…oh my! Who were they? Their stories, like many others, have often been overshadowed in history. While they may not have been in the national spotlight, their influence was profound to this country and continues to have an impact today.
