On: February 10, 2019 At: Atwood House & Museum – Home of the Chatham Historical Society 347 Stage Harbor Road; Chatham, MA 02633
For such a small peninsula, Cape Cod has, at times, been in national and even international news for its battles over civil rights. Writer Evan J. Albright will survey more than four centuries of struggle by Wampanoag, African American, and Cape Verdean peoples on Cape Cod.
Evan "Josh" Albright is an award-winning journalist and has been writing about the underbelly of Cape Cod history for 30 years. He is the author of The Man Who Owned a Wonder of the World: The Gringo History of Mexico's Chichen Itza, the true story of the Cape Cod man who owned one of the Seven Wonders of the World, as well as two books on the history of local crime, Cape Cod Confidential and the forthcoming Cape Cod Babylon. He is currently at work on a biography of William Henry Lewis, the first black All American football player, the first African American appointed to a subcabinet post and the first African American to win a case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
