Liquified Creative Annapolis

From the Kunta-Kinte Alex Haley Memorial at City Dock uphill to the State House, see Annapolis as a microcosm of Maryland African American heritage. Trace the rich history of African-Americans in Annapolis with a period dressed guide and explore this important facet of our history and culture. Watermark’s partnership with the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation was recognized by Four Rivers Heritage Area with the award for “Best New Heritage Initiative” when this tour was introduced in 2006.

“We specialize in sharing the history of Annapolis and telling the story of African American heritage and contributions in our historically significant area.” President of Watermark, Debbie Gosselin says, “As part of a partnership developed with Leonard Blackshear years ago, twenty percent of all revenue from this tour – including the private groups and field trips that take the tour throughout the year – goes to the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation.”
