Apess Marker Milestone

Tonight the Colrain Historical Commission will be meeting to discuss, among other things I imagine, the location of the Apess Historical Marker in the town of Colrain, MA where William Apess was born. I wish I could be there, but living 550 miles away makes it difficult for me to attend. Still I appreciate their continued support on this project from start to near-finish. The Colrain Historical Commission, with the help of Liz Sonnenberg, were the first to invite me to come speak about my research on Through an Indian’s Looking-Glass back in 2016, before the book was even published. I am so grateful for their sustained interest in devoting public space to remembering Apess’s legacy and his connection to Colrain.
More to come.

Your donation to the Historical Marker Go Fund Me Site will contribute towards the erection of the William Apess historical marker (shown in image) that will be erected in Colrain, Massachusetts, place of William Apess' birth. Our goal is to reach $4,000.00 to cover the cost of the sign and its presentation in the Colrain town square.
