Description

An Affair To Remember! This culminating event marks the historic 50th Anniversary of the nation's first state ethnic commission, the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC). Join us as we celebrate Black history in Maryland, through music, awards, performances, and more!

About We Rise! Campaign:

This year marks the yearlong 50th Anniversary of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture and this year’s theme is “We Rise, Preserving Maryland’s African American Heritage”.

Since its founding in 1969 by Senator Verda Freeman Welcome (the nation’s first African American female State Senator) and Dr. Benjamin Arthur Quarles (Morgan State University Professor of History and renowned African American Historian), the Commission has given rise to a 21 seat statewide commission appointed by the Governor.

Our key resources include operating the State’s official museum on African American History and Culture (Banneker Douglass Museum) and the State's $1-million African American Heritage Preservation Grant Program.

Your support helps MCAAHC accomplish its' mission to preserve and educate the masses on the importance of Black history in Maryland.

Join us as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary!

Please Note: There are no refunds to this event. Please email bannekerdouglassmuseum@gmail.com with any questions. Thank you!
