The Banneker-Douglass Museum will host a quarterly Author Talk and Book Signing featuring conversational discussions on History and Culture in Maryland led by authors who write about the African American experience. Local writers will share, reflect, and empower readers and future authors by showcasing different perspectives on both local and global issues. Please join us as we explore the pages of rich history and diverse culture through this program.
