“I’ve become a time-traveler and indulged a childhood fantasy to sail on an old ship. I’ve managed to give voice to ancestors I did not know existed and could not imagine before this. I’ve seen another lifetime, and now I’m able to talk about it.”
Cristina J. Baptista
Baptista is a Portuguese-American writer, literary scholar, and English Instructor at Convent of the Sacred Heart School in Greenwich, Connecticut. Prior to working at CSH, she taught at Fordham University where she received her Ph.D. in English, with a focus on Modern American Literature.
Eighty-five individuals from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds sailed aboard the ship and participated in an unprecedented public-history project, using their own perspectives and talents to document their experiences. Meet the Voyagers »
