Earlier this year, the Equal Justice Initiative announced that it had approved a proposal for the first EJI historical marker in the state of Maryland to the AA CO Connecting the Dots: Remembrance and Reconciliation Project, That group has announced that the unveiling ceremony for the marker will take place at 10am on September 7, 2019. Please mark your calendars for this important date in Maryland’s history !

The ceremony will take place on Calvert Street across from the Arundel Center, the former site of the jail from which Henry Davis was abducted by a white mob intent on lynching him after marching him through predominantly black communities in an act of terror. This ceremony will mark the acts of racial terrorism and our continued mission to remember and reconcile.
