Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture

The Banneker-Douglass Museum is a unit of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC), which is part of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives (GOCI).

The MCAAHC Culture is committed to discovering, documenting, preserving, collecting, and promoting Maryland’s African American heritage. The Commission also provides technical assistance to institutions and groups with similar objectives.  Through the accomplishment of this mission, the MCAAHC seeks to educate Maryland citizens and visitors to our state about the significance and impact of the African American experience in Maryland.
