The Pea Island Preservation Society held a presentation at U.S. Coast Guard Base Portsmouth, in Virginia on Feb. 21, 2021.

Located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Pea Island Life-Saving Station was the first life-saving station in the country to have an all-black crew. The Pea Island Preservation Society’s director and president, Joan Collins and Darrell Collins, who presented during this exhibition, are related to Dorman Pugh, a surfman who served under Richard Etheridge, the first black commanding officer in the Coast Guard. The Pea Island Preservation Society’s president and director are also related to Maxie Berry Sr., the last officer in charge of the station and Lt. Herbert Collins who helped decommission the station in 1947. Kevin Pruden, who was also at the ceremony, is the grandson of Keeper George Pruden.
