AARCH sponsors and presents exhibits on African American history and culture for schools, fairs, libraries, and community events. Previous exhibits have focused on African American soldiers who served in World War I and World War II; another highlighted African Americans in Frederick County who are “held in regard” because of their contributions to the wider community.
The State of Maryland created a quilt to celebrate the emancipation of slaves in 1864. Each county in the state contributed a panel; AARCH designed the Frederick County panel.
