"The Sea is History: Moun Kantè, Yoleros, Balseros, Boteros," a 2009 exhibit presented by the Duke University Libraries, will be traveling to the Marguerite Kent Repass Ocean Conservation Center at the Nicholas School of the Environment’s Marine Laboratory.

This exhibit, which documents the ongoing migration of hundreds of thousands of Haitians, Dominicans, and Cubans across the sea to the United States, will be on display at the center from Friday, 23 July to Tuesday, 31 August  2010.

An opening reception, including a discussion with Holly Ackerman, exhibit curator and Librarian for Latin America and Iberia, and Margaret Brown, Exhibits Coordinator, will be held at the North Carolina Maritime Museum and the Marguerite Kent Repass Ocean Conservation Center on Friday, 23 July 2010 from 4:00-7:00 PM.
