Mission Statement

The Banneker-Douglass Museum, named for Benjamin Banneker and Frederick Douglass, is dedicated to preserving Maryland's African American heritage, and serves as the state's official repository of African American material culture. The museum annually sponsors and hosts a variety of reservation, arts, and cultural lectures, workshops, performances, and other programs.

Description

The Banneker-Douglass Museum opened in the historic Mt. Moriah A.M.E. Church in February 1984 as the state repository for African American history and culture. The museum project was the result of an extraordinary partnership among the Annapolis African American community, Historic Annapolis Foundation, and state and local governments. A project of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, the Banneker-Douglass Museum has worked to document, preserve, and interpret African American heritage for over twenty years. The museum has organized numerous changing exhibits, annual programs, and educational events aimed at informing the public about the vital role African Americans have played throughout Maryland history.
