MARION —  Discover Cape Verde through the lens of Rick DaSilva on Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Music Hall. 

Using both black and white and color images, DaSilva will take the audience from Marion to the volcanic islands more than 250 miles west of Africa’s shores.

DaSilva, a Sippican Historical Society Board Member and Director of Community and Equity Affairs at St. Mark's School in Southborough, traveled to Cape Verde during the summer of 2023. A Marion native who’s grandfather emigrated to Marion from Cape Verde, he presented results from the Town of Marion’s survey of Portuguese, Cape Verdean and Azorean settlements in 2022 and 2023.

“I enjoyed seeing his Instagram posts this summer and can't wait to see more,” said Sippican Historical Society Executive Director Alanna Nelson.
