Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions (UCAC) Embarks on an Exciting New Project!

(07/16/2014) Posted By: Merideth Taylor

Sharing stories from our history:

A "Pathway through History 1865-1942" will lead visitors from the United States Colored Troops Memorial Monument to the Lexington Park Manor "Flat Tops" Buildings in John G. Lancaster Park. Four interpretive wayside signs placed along the path will mark milestones and challenges experienced by the African American (and broader) community from the end of the Civil War up to World War II. The four interpretive panels will enhance the USCT Memorial Monument and bring to light little known local history.

We're looking for your documents and photos to help us tell the story!

We need community participation on these projects! The Pathway through History Project is looking for photos, letters, military documents, or other mementos from the time period 1865 to 1942. If you have any item that you think may help us tell our story, we want to hear from you! Go to the UCAC Website at www.africanamericancontributions.com or www.ucaconline.org for information on how to share your photos or mementos.

Additional optional information:

A project committee comprised of representatives of Unified Committee for African American Contributions (UCAC) and the St. Mary's County Recreation and Parks and Tourism departments are collaborating with a research team of St. Mary's College of Maryland students under the direction of history professor Charles Holden.
