Join University of Maryland Black Alumni (UMBA) as they partner with the Banneker-Douglass Museum, the state’s official African American Museum, to give back on Martin Luther King’s Day of Service.
On this day, attendees are asked to join us at the museum, donate nonperishable food items and participate in docent guided and self-guided tours of this historical space. This is a family friendly event and service learning hours will be available for Maryland middle and high school students.
Attendees are welcome to drop in and visit the museum from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. However, docent guided tours will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Space is limited for docent guided tours.
Food donations will be accepted at the Banneker Douglass Museum during the hours listed above. Donations will benefit the Lighthouse Shelter in Annapolis, MD. Donations may include canned foods (beans, vegetables, fruit, tuna), peanut butter, hot and cold cereal, and 100% juice.
