Maryland History Lecture Series

February 3, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Historical Performance by the Northern Arundel Cultural Preservation Society

 Emancipation Continues: War & Peace

Set in 2018, diverse members of a local community organization “battle” to create a show for Black History month that celebrates great African American speakers, authors, artists, and entertainers of the 1940s and 1950s. Throughout their meetings, the members provide examples of vocal and instrumental music, dance, poetry, oratory, and history of the period to determine works worthy of presentation to their audience. Written and directed by Vivian Spencer.

For more than 35 years, The Maryland History Lecture series at St. John’s College has presented a wide variety of topics on Maryland subjects and events. Sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation the lectures are free and open to the public and held in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium.

From 1999 to 2017, Willard Royal Mumford, as director of the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation, stewarded these lectures with great enthusiasm, bringing to the St. John’s campus engaging storytellers and important authors, historians and politicians. This year, we honor the late Will Mumford with three topics he found interesting: Annapolis during the Civil War, African American history in Anne Arundel County, and the Chesapeake Bay.
