Join the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture as we celebrate resiliency and commitment through our annual symposium: The Spirit of the Black Family: Reclaim, Rejoice, Renew, Remember. This year’s symposium is held over three days and includes in-person and virtual events including the third installment of BDM’s signature Anti-Racism training with opening remarks from the Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates, Adrienne Jones. Programming also explores health and wellness, education, financial competency, and much more. This year’s symposium guarantees to deliver education, history, and culture for all.
