We welcome Marla Davis to History Room Live as she presents “The Tinney-Price Family of Bath, Maine: Contributions to Community and Country,” May 14th on Zoom.
Marla’s talk will expand upon her February 10, 2021 contribution to the library’s Black History Month Teach-In and Read-In, a short video which focused on the life of George Tinney Sr. In the course of her research, Marla’s effort to document one of Bath’s African-American entrepreneurs grew to include the story of his ancestors and descendants in the Tinney and Price families, from Demerara (Guyana) to Maine and beyond. Marla will share what she learned of the family’s story and demonstrate how different resources can be used to diversify local history.
