From Banneker to Douglass:  The Quests for Freedom and Equality
Exhibit date: Nov 1, 2014 through Feb 28, 2015
The aim of this exhibit is to commemorate the early efforts of Maryland’s African Americans and their allies in their pursuit for freedom and equality for all.   Although too numerous to show, the exhibit reveals some of the key and lesser-known movements from the colonial era to the decade before the American Civil War.  These efforts took on many forms that include protest literature, conventions, enslaved people seeking freedom, and educational initiatives.
