This museum focuses on African Americans of the Chesapeake region from 1633 to the civil-rights movement. Named after two prominent local residents, astronomer/inventor Benjamin Banneker and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, the museum now features its first permanent exhibit on local African American history, "Deep Roots, Rising Water."
