Another free stop in Annapolis with insight into African American history in Maryland and Annapolis. The AME church portion features an exhibit of Herbert Frisby, the second African American to the North Pole (he was inspired by the story of Alexander Henson, the first to make it with Cdr. Peary). The main museum part featured displays on the fight to save the church where Frederick Douglas once spoke and about the fight for freedom in Maryland with spotlights on key players such as Frederick Douglas and Harriet Tubman. I was impressed by the correspondence between Benjamin Banneker & Thomas Jefferson, the former confronting the latter on his slave holdings. Enlightening, a nice addition to other sites in the city and state.
