Congratulations Kimberly, Esteban, and Dr. Cammarano!

Two SU students revive their native cultures by creating children’s stories based on Mayan and Aztec mythology and lore. Kimberly Arriaga-Gonzalez and Esteban Garcia-Ailon, both of Mesoamerican descent, have combined their skills in creative writing and education for a research project with their mentor, Dr. Cristina Cammarano, that they hope will allow Latinx children to hear their own stories.

One of our most controversial sources is now available on Internet Archive: interviews conducted between 1970-73 documenting the regional memory of Salisbury’s 1931 lynching of Matthew Williams (as well as two other 1930s cases, George Armwood and Euel Lee). Although many of the stories recorded by Dr. Polly Stewart’s folklore students capture vivid descriptions—including one from a mob leader’s wife—they also exemplify the fault of memory 40 years later as most of the interviewees confuse dates and events with other local lynchings, or were simply retelling stories they had heard from older generations. The picture these 28 interviews create as a whole—a city that’s tried to erase its trauma from four decades earlier—is remarkable. Today, with committees from the City of Salisbury, Somerset County, and State of Maryland, we seek to facilitate the discovery of truth and reconciliation.
Check them out here (https://archive.org/details/2006.244-lynching-interviews) and in our Lower Eastern Shore lynchings resource guide where you can find more primary sources: https://libraryguides.salisbury.edu/lowereslynchings

Please note that the interviews contain descriptions of graphic violence. Names and addresses have been redacted to protect privacy concerns raised by the uncertainty of the sources’ copyright status.

After 1864, churches across Delmarva cemented themselves at the heart of African American communities, with many congregants who were formerly enslaved. Under the auspices of the newly-formed Delaware Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, five churches represented in our digital collections flourished in Dorchester, Somerset, and, later, Wicomico Counties: Metropolitan Methodist Episcopal Church (Princess Anne), Malone Methodist Episcopal Church (Madison), Mt. Calvary United Methodist Church (Fruitland), Friendship ME Church (Allen), and Flower Hill United Methodist Church (Eden). You can explore the transcribed church records in our Internet Archive collection by searching “church records” or following this link: https://bit.ly/3tmF610

In 1959, Martin Luther King Jr was the commencement speaker at Maryland State College—now the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. At that point, he was best known for leading the Montgomery bus boycotts, but the Daily Times covered the historic visit with only an 11-paragraph, picture-less article. Learn more on the UMES website (where this photo of MLK and President Williams was borrowed from): https://www.umes.edu/125/Content/Stories/Dr--Martin-Luther-King-Jr--visits-Maryland-State/
Join us in taking time today in reflecting on King’s life and legacy, and what it means for families across the Eastern Shore and throughout the country he fought to improve.

"The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community. The aftermath of nonviolence is redemption. The aftermath of nonviolence is reconciliation. The aftermath of violence are emptiness and bitterness. This is the thing
I’m concerned about. Let us fight passionately and unrelentingly for the goals of justice and peace. But let’s be sure that our hands are clean in this struggle."

We invite you to reflect on this sermon given by MLK on his birthday. It is called "The Birth of a New Nation" given after visiting Ghana in 1957:http://okra.stanford.edu/transcription/document_images/Vol04Scans/155_7-Apr-1957_The%20Birth%20of%20a%20New%20Nation.pdf
