#Teach Truth Rally at 91- 97 Main Street, Yarmouth
YCARE members pledged support of teachers committed to teaching the truth about the people who lived at this address in the early 20th century. This address is where the Freeman Barber Shop was located. Almeda Isabel Freeman daughter of William H. Freeman, born in 1902 was born in Yarmouth and listed as Black. In 1910, the US census listed the family as white. Understanding that racial identities changed as laws changed is a key part of understanding how structural and systemic racism functioned and functions in the United States.
