Joe Carvallo III will present the history of African Americans in Western Massachusetts from the earliest days of colonial slavery to the civil war.

Were your ancestors immigrants? Are you finding a need to better understand the immigrant experience in Western Massachusetts? Wistariahurst Museum has lined up a series of historical lectures to examine various immigrant communities in the Pioneer valley and to better understand the cultural enrichments these folks brought with them. Join us on Monday evenings in the carriage house, promptly at 6:00 p.m. from March 9 through May 11 as we listen and learn from historians, educators, museum professionals and writers.
