Couple inquires about this and I’ve only been living here for a year now.

In 2013, it seems there was some kind of state acknowledgement that Maine should try harder to celebrate Black history because I found some pathetic write-ups in a few disparate organziations’ archives (couldn’t figure out where the education or honor was, just a frequent use of the word diverse…)

Quick search, little eval; sites:
