Cape Cod Camino Way (ZOOM)

January 11 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

The Cape Cod Camino Way explores history through the lens of social justice, and brings the past to life. In this program, you will “walk” across Cape Cod with Peggy Jablonski, founder of the Cape Cod Camino Way project. We will travel to the past examining issues such as women and people of color in science, the sea captains of Brewster and connections to the Triangle Trade, the Wampanoag story connected with the Mayflower, the free spirit and artistry of Provincetown, and more. Discussion and sharing information is encouraged to raise our awareness together. To learn more visit: https://capecodcaminoway.com/

About Peggy Jablonski.

What do you do when a pandemic forces you to stay close to home, and issues of social and
racial justice spark a reckoning with the past as well as the current state of affairs in the country? You seek answers right where you live, by walking and discovering stories of people who came before you, and those around you today. Over the summer of 2020, Peggy Jablonski walked through every town on the peninsula of Cape Cod, on a pilgrimage to reflect, listen, understand and take action. She learned the “real stories” about: the Pilgrims and Wampanoags; Enslavement of Native Americans and Blacks; Artists who are People of Color; LGBTQ issues; health care disparities; economic injustice; racial profiling, and so much more.The Cape Cod Camino Way is her story of asking questions, finding answers and sharing what she found. It’s also the story of building awareness toward true social justice action for the future. And it’s a guide to creating a Camino Way walk of your own!Peggy lives in Brewster MA and serves as a consultant and coach to higher education and nonprofits. She is the Executive Director of the Executive Leadership Institute developing leaders for MA community colleges and state universities. An avid golfer, she can be found walking a golf course when not leading walks on the Cape Cod Camino Way.
