African American History Tour


Description:

Join Phd candidate Christopher Mielke in the Hammond-Harwood House for a tour on African American History.

You will hear the stories of men and women, both enslaved and free, who built, maintained and lived in the house. The lives of three enslaved women - Mary, Matilda and Juliet are covered in the tour. In addition, we will learn the story of the house's connection with freedom-seekers and petitions for freeing certain enslaved men and women, as well as its connection to the American Colonization Society and even with an early African-American artist.

As Maryland is America in miniature, the Hammond-Harwood House in so many ways encompasses the whole history of the African-American Experience from the eighteenth to the twentieth century.
