This is a documentary film recounting the little-known story of people of color on Cape Cod. It will be shown at 7 pm on March 28, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth.

These are the stories of African Americans, Wampanoag, and peoples from Brazil, the Caribbean and Cape Verde. The film was produced by and John Reed, the Executive Director of the Zion Union Heritage Museum of Hyannis. This museum is the repository of the rich history of the diversity of these settlers of Cape Cod. Mr. Reed will introduce the film and answer questions afterwards.

His career as a teacher of social studies at Barnstable High School and advocacy of youth in Hyannis earned him the National Education Association’s H. Council Trenholm Memorial Award for human and civil rights.
