The Maryland State Department of Education Partnership with the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture
The Maryland State Department of Education has formed a partnership with the Reginald F. Lewis Museum to write a K–12 state-wide curriculum. The objective of this unique partnership is to create a climate of understanding and appreciation supportive of Maryland African American history, culture and art. Through both museum-based and school-based interactive programs and in/outreach activities, the partnership curriculum will reach every Maryland student, in every classroom, in every school.
