African-American Heritage

A marker designates Edward Brodess Farm—a property along Greenbrier Road near Blackwater Refuge that is historically recognized as Harriet Tubman's childhood home.

The impact of Maryland’s African-American heritage is represented across the state—and more importantly, celebrated across the state. Visit Pennsylvania Avenue Black Arts & Entertainment District, the first of its kind in Maryland. Or travel to historic sites where bold and daring acts of defiance on the Underground Railroad changed the course of history. We are open for all. Let us share our heritage with you.
