Black History Month #12 - Desegregating Greenbelt


Did you know that Greenbelt began as a segregated community? Despite the fact that it was built by both Black and white relief workers, only white families would be accepted as residents when it first opened and it would remain segregated for several decades after its founding in 1937. Join the Greenbelt Museum to learn about the community’s first residents of color. Please note this program is a pre-recorded interview with one of the first families of color to move into Greenbelt in the late 1960s. The other family with whom we had hoped to speak is unable to participate because of health issues. We plan to do another interview in the future. Registration is not required, but if you register, you will be sent a link to the recorded interview when it goes live on YouTube at 7pm on February 25th. To register click here.

The Museum is co-sponsoring this event with the Greenbelt Black History and Culture Committee For the full listing of City sponsored events in February, please see below or click here.
