Acknowledging the Uncovering of Malaga
We chose this topic after reading Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy. We realized how much Maine was involved in the disbanding of families, especially mixed-race families, and we had to know more. So we decided to take a drive down to Phippsburg, Maine, and we also stopped at Pownall Home for the Feeble Minded, which is now known as Pineland Farms. We wanted to see what is known about the two town’s pasts and how much is known about the awful mistreatment of the Malaga people, or any possible signs of reparations to the dedicated to the Malaga people.
