Mobile’s Colonial History and Race: A Unique Journey through American History

The Mobile Creole Cultural and Historical Preservation Society and the Mobile Public Library invite you to come meet Scott Corcoran from the History Museum of Mobile as he discusses Mobile’s unique Colonial experience.

French Mobile’s Colonial Society was one built on cultural exchange, specifically relationships with Native Americans. These relationships affected Mobile’s Colonial era through French, British and Spanish occupation. As Mobile grew, the relationships between whites, blacks, Native Americans and those of multi-racial ancestry, evolved and changed under the different Colonial powers.
