Fall Lecture Series History Below the Waves: Shipwrecks of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary External Event Page
The Mariners' Museum and Park   Organization Web Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: 100 Museum Drive
Presented by Jeff Gray, Superintendent of NOAA's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Preserved by the cold freshwater on which they once served, more than 200 shipwrecks are believed to rest in Lake Huron's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The sheer number of shipwrecks is impressive. However, it is their excellent state of preservation and what they represent - a century and a half of maritime commerce and travel on the Great Lakes' that make them truly special. Jeff Gray, the superintendent of TBNMS, will take us on a freshwater journey to a time when schooner and steamer ruled the Great Lakes. We will explore some of the nation's best preserved shipwrecks and how the sanctuary is working through research and education efforts to protect the Great Lakes and their rich history for future generations.
FREE for Members; $5 for guests

Fall Lecture Series Njinga of Angola: Africa's Warrior Queen External Event Page
The Mariners' Museum and Park   Organization Web Page
Newport News, Virginia
Presented by Linda Heywood: Queen Njinga of Angola was one of the great rulers of the 17th century, a woman who rivaled Elizabeth I and Catherine the Great in political cunning and military prowess. This lecture will explore the political and religious dimensions of Queen Njinga's life, as she dealt with Portuguese governors, the Dutch West India Company, and European missionaries. We'll also take a look at Njinga's legacy in the United States, and how some Afro-American writers and artists have presented the story of Queen Njinga to readers and theater-going audiences. Linda Heywood is a professor of African History and the History of the African Diaspora and African American Studies at Boston University. She is the author of several books on African history, and has served as a consultant for museums such as the Smithsonian Institution, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and The Mariners' Museum. She is currently a consultant to Henry Louis Gates' new PBS series African Civilizations.
