Surviving New England's Great Dying, Screening & Discussion

Could a long-ago plague still hold lessons as we face a modern-day challenge?
It’s been more than 400 years since the first Thanksgiving, and there is a lot we are still learning about that time. Just prior to the Pilgrims’ arrival, for instance, a plague decimated New England’s coastal Native American population. In the upcoming New Hampshire PBS documentary, SURVIVING NEW ENGLAND’S GREAT DYING, Native American tribal members, historians, and anthropologists will tell the story of a long-ago plague that holds important lessons for us today, as we experience a modern-day pandemic. 
On November 16 at 7 pm, New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with NHPBS, will present a screening and discussion of the upcoming NHPBS documentary, Surviving New England's Great Dying. After the screening, Jon Cannon, New Hampshire history teacher and host of the long-running NHPBS high school quiz show Granite State Challenge, will moderate a conversation with documentary participant, journalist, historian, and member of the Massachusetts Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Paula Peters, and film producers Phil Vaughn and Jim Smith.
Please join us on November 16, 2021 @ 7pm for a free, online program.
