This tribute to the unique contributions of African Americans in St. Mary's County spans the following areas: religion, farming, trades, domestic service, education, business, industry, community service, arts entertainment, health, sports, government, politics, law enforcement, military service, and technology. It is fitting that monuments be built to solidify dignity and self-esteem... monuments that sing praises of love and encouragement to African Americans and others. Embrace the strength and unity of the African American Community! Build! Build monuments within and monuments without that reflect heritage, that create vision!
