African American History & Culture

Since Baltimore's founding in the early 1700s, the large black population has been making contributions to its growth and development both physically and spiritually. While slavery was legal in Maryland, there were more free blacks in Baltimore than there were slaves. The free blacks established churches and organizations to fight against persecution, resulting in an abundant number of black churches still standing in the city today.

Significant Baltimore black history and culture sites and events include the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, The Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park, the The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum, and the annual African American Festival.
