NEAAAL’s Nantucket Story Map


A historic map of the island of Nantucket

As we honor and celebrate Juneteenth, the New England African American Archaeology Lab is proud to share its recently completed ArcGIS Story Map. Juneteenth, a celebration of African American freedom, education, and achievement, is the perfect backdrop for this Story Map. It shares the history of Nantucket’s 18th and 19th-century community of color, New Guinea, and celebrates ten years of NEAAAL’s influential research under the guidance of Dr. Nedra Lee. This Story Map is a testament to Black persistence and resistance. Join us in this celebration by viewing the Story Map!
