Tiana Coastguard

Men of Color 1942 – 1944
Thursday, January 20th, 11am 
Please join historian Sandi Brewster-Walker for a lively discussion on the crew of color who lived and worked at East Quogue’s Tiana Lookout Barracks Station during WWII. Originally built in 1871 as Tiana Life-Saving Station, the building was used as a Coast Guard barracks from 1942-1944. Ms. Brewster-Walker’s talk questions the true purpose of the segregated Tiana Lookout Barracks station and encompasses the contributions of local men of color on merchant, whaling and U.S. cutter ships throughout Long Island’s maritime history.
