Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African Art Gallery

The Mission, Purpose and Objectives of the Museum are:

- To focus on the heritage of Blacks from their origin in Africa through the Trans-Atlantic passage, participation with the Underground Railroad, the struggle for civil rights, and their accomplishments across the African Diaspora;

- To bridge the information gap and inform all ethnic groups — particularly those in Montgomery County—about the advantages of cross-cultural communication and diversity, as expressed through the arts and humanities; and

- To display the significant contributions that African/African Americans have made in the building of America.

A gem. I had no idea this was here! A little hard to find and only open on weekends. Give yourself a couple hour's to see it all

I enjoyed exposing my daughter who loves history to a deeper look into Slavery. The people where very friendly.
