Annapolis Port Marker Installation

  • Date: Tuesday, November 1
  • Time: 11:00 am-1:00 pm
  • Location: Susan Campbell Park, Annapolis City Dock
  • Host Organization: City of Annapolis

The Annapolis Port Marker is on its way! Having met all mandatory approvals to include the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) of the City of Annapolis Historic District, the UNESCO “Port Marker Project” is moving forward.

In 2012 Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Marker Project (MPCPMP) performed a Libation Ceremony at the Kunta Kinte/Alex Haley Memorial to designate Annapolis, MD as one of numerous sites in North America participating in human trafficking during the transatlantic/triangular slave trade.

During Black History Month 2022, 10 years after MPCPMP’s recommendation, the City of Annapolis will raise the UNESCO Port Marker during a community “Port Marker Ceremony” under the direction of the Annapolis Port Marker Committee. The Marker will be installed at Susan Campbell Park, Annapolis City Dock. This event is free to attend.
