Welcome to the third series of the "We Exist"
exhibit. In this section we have digitized photographs surrounding the theme of the Black church in Maine. The photos are wide-ranging and represent Black residents in Maine participating in various activities with the church during different stages of the life course. We will see Black residents engaged in civic activities (preparing means to feed community members), engaging as parishioners (participating in the choir; religious education, etc.), participating in leisure activities (for example, church vacations), and church parishioners being active participants in different aspects of the civil rights movements.
To view the photos and related data individually, you can click on the image. The individual photo entry page will provide a photo title, photo description, and the Collection that the photo is attached to. Additional keywords attached to the photo and exhibit are searchable by typing the search terms into the search bar in the upper left of the page.
