Frederick Douglass Community Day – A Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Celebration Event

Inspired by the famous Frederick Douglass speech "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?" BDM will host a fun summer event that features performances, a Frederick Douglass re-enactment, food/beverage, guided tours of our exhibitions, and family fun and educational arts & crafts activities.  Families and community members of all ages and backgrounds will explore topics of freedom, community, art, and history. 

This Event is Brought to You By Banneker-Douglass Museum

As the State of Maryland’s official museum of African American heritage, the Banneker-Douglass Museum serves to document, to interpret, and to promote African American history and culture (particularly in Maryland) through exhibitions, programs, and projects in order to improve the understanding and appreciating of America’s rich cultural diversity for all. The Banneker-Douglass Museum is a component of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture, which is a unit of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives — an executive-department agency, whose mandate to coordinate outreach efforts to communities, organizations, and local governments across Maryland serves as a unifying principle for all its departments. Open Tue-Fri., 10a.m. - 3 p.m.; Sat, noon - 4p.m.
