Summary:
An exhibition on the North Brentwood neighborhood in Prince George's County Maryland which was the first African American incorporated town in that county and the Washington metropolitan area. The show was developed by the Anacostia Museum in collaboration with the North Brentwood Historical Society. Through photographs, interview, artifacts, and archival evidence, this exhibit captured how generations of ex-slaves and descendants of slaved organized their lives and built a community in the suburbs from the turn-of-the century through the post-World War II years. It was exhibited at the museum July 12, 1996 through January 15, 1997 before travelling to the North Brentwood Community Center and the Lowe House of Delegates in Annapolis, Maryland.
These records document the planning, organizing, execution, and promotion of the exhibition. Materials include correspondence, research files, exhibit scripts, administrative records, brochures, press coverage, education packets, loan agreements, and floor plans.
