Throughout February to celebrate African-American History Month, the Battleship will offer a class on the USS Mason, which had a predominantly African-American crew and was an example of desegregation in the navy.

Groups must be less than 30 people, allow us to break the group into smaller, safer groups of 10 people maximum, pass our health screening, wear a face mask and practice social distancing of one fathom – six feet — when aboard the ship. The classes will also be a maximum of 10 people socially distanced.
The class on the USS Mason is also available as part of the Battleship’s Distance Learning program. Let our curatorial staff conduct the lesson live online to students in their classroom.
