Banneker-Douglass Museum has announced the formation of the 2021 Anti -Racism Coalition (ARC).

Liquified Creative Annapolis

“For over 50 years, MCAAHC has documented the history of the advancements of Black Americans, advancements all made despite the obstacle of oppression based for the most part solely on race. MCAAHC continues to push for racial equity through the preservation and presentation of Black history and programming such as this training series,” said Rev. Tamara E. Wilson, Chair, MCAAHC. “These trainings provide a framework for the work that we must do to dismantle systemic racist practices that continue to disenfranchise and further subjugate Black lives today.”

The Anti-Racism Coalition is committed to dismantling systemic racism as it relates to criminal justice, economic justice, inequality in education, technology and the digital divide, police brutality, healthcare disparities, voting rights, and more. On April 20th, 2021, the ARC successfully completed its first anti-racism training, “The Foundations of Racism: Defining the Roots of Bigotry and Discrimination Against Black People in America.” More than 180 participants joined the training with overwhelmingly positive feedback. The next training will be held virtually via Zoom on July 27th.
