Annapolis’ 4th Ward: The Harlem of Annapolis Part 3

3743B420-29C8-4A7B-BD09-1693B76BCF44Annapolis is a fabulous city, rich in Maritime History.  However, it is still a Southern Town and being so, it had a history of racial segregation. For Annapolis, the segregation for African Americans took place in the fourth ward, once called the Harlem of Annapolis.

In this area there is a Civil Rights memorial featuring Dr. Martin Luther King and other poignant facts on the movement. It also features Stanton Community Center with a remarkable reflection of Black Life in Annapolis of years gone by in mural form. The sun wouldn’t allow me to be great but, I will update soon!!!
