Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture


Editorial Review

The museum pays tribute to Maryland’s African American heritage. There are three permanent galleries: “Things Hold Lines Connect” on how slavery in Maryland affected family ties; “Building Maryland, Building America,” about how oppression contributed, in a complicated way, to the future of the United States, and “The Strength of the Mind” on music, dance, art and language. It’s the largest African American museum on the East Coast.
