Did you know that there was once a thriving African American Community called Lakeland adjacent to the University, stretching from Route 1 in College Park to Lake Artemesia Park? Disrupted over the years by urban renewal, including actions by the city of College Park, the Maryland National Parks and Planning Commission, and the University of Maryland, Lakeland is still home to community members working to preserve its legacy and to seek restorative justice.
Join us for a panel discussion of Lakeland’s history, the effort to preserve its heritage, and its current quest for justice.
Note: You will receive the link to access the event online in your order confirmation email, and in a reminder email before the event starts.
