Tell us your story!! The Lost Towns Project is hosting three public events to discuss two grant projects (funded by the National Park Service and the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority). One project is to document African American historic sites in South County within the Four Rivers Heritage Area, while the other will document Civil Rights Era sites, particularly in historic recreational areas, that exist throughout Anne Arundel County. Civil Rights Era sites will be places where African Americans responded to discrimination, including contested spaces such as segregated beach resorts, ball fields, swimming pools, playgrounds, and other insular, sometimes private spaces. Come share your experiences and schedule an oral history interview! Please RSVP by emailing ShareYourStory@losttownsproject.org. Check out our flyer for dates, times, and locations! ...
