Following WWII, Lumbee Indians from rural North Carolina moved to Baltimore, forming a large satellite community with numbers reaching into the thousands. Baltimore’s Lumbee community is absent from popular narratives of the city, and has even been referred to as “invisible.” The March lecture will shed light on this Baltimore community and its people and places.
