Prince George's County and the Montpelier Arts Center Celebrate African American Culture
Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission Prince George’s County Division and the Montpelier Arts Center are celebrating African American history in Prince George’s County with a new exhibit about the people and events that have shaped the history of the county in “Glancing Back & Looking Forward: 100 Years of African American Culture and History in Prince George’s County, Maryland.”This exhibition features information about the lives of selected Prince Georgians who held a variety of occupations and community roles, and how those citizens affected their communities.
Through photographs, artifacts and excerpts from interviews, the Everyday People Making History feature will convey the personal stories of participants and highlight the ways in which they have been a part of Prince George’s County history over the past century.This free exhibit is open through February 28, 2015. It’s just a short trip from BeechTree to the museum. Contact the Montpelier Arts Center for more information.
