The Ocean Explorium and the Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth welcome Sylvia Ann Soares for a special event on Tuesday, February 8. Doors open at 6 pm for light refreshments and mingling in the Ocean Explorium before the presentation begins at 7 pm.
Ms. Soares will share highlights from By the Sweat of Our Brow created from an oral history project, with photo slides selected from the project presentation. Many of the men interviewed for By the Sweat of Our Brow are first-generation Cape Verdean-Americans, and their stories offer a rich collage of life experiences.
The Ocean Explorium is located at 174 Union Street in New Bedford and is handicap accessible through the rear entrance. Call 508.994.5400 for after-hours access.
