Our Mission

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture is the premier experience and best resource for information and inspiration about the lives of African American Marylanders. The museum seeks to realize its mission by collecting, preserving, interpreting, documenting and exhibiting the rich contributions of African American Marylanders from the state’s earliest history to the present and the future. Our vision is to share globally, and with integrity, the human drama of Maryland’s African American experience.

We rely on the generous support of donors, sponsors, members, and other benefactors to share the history of Maryland, educate the public, and inspire future generations. With your support, we can continue to preserve and safeguard our comprehensive collections and exhibitions that represent the African-American experience in Maryland.
