Tiana Coastguard Men Of Color

authorStaff Writer on Jan 10, 2022

On January 20, at 11 a.m., Southampton History Museum will host historian Sandi Brewster-Walker who will present “Tiana Coastguard Men of Color 1942-1944,” a lively discussion via Zoom on the crew of color who lived and worked at East Quogue’s Tiana Lookout Barracks Station during WWII.

Originally built in 1871 as Tiana Life-Saving Station, the building was used as a Coast Guard barracks from 1942-1944. Brewster-Walker’s talk questions the true purpose of the segregated Tiana Lookout Barracks Station and encompasses the contributions of local men of color on merchant, whaling and U.S. cutter ships throughout Long Island’s maritime history.
