The ‘Few of the Many’ Awards is County Executive Steuart Pittman's signature Black History Month event in partnership with the Caucus of African American Leaders. The goal is to recognize African American residents in Anne Arundel County who have made lasting contributions to their communities.

The two honors—The Sojourner Truth Award and The Elijah Cummings Award—were created posthumously to recognize two towering landmark figures whose lives left indelible marks on the struggle for equal justice and humanity.

This year's theme is “Black Resilience,” which calls on residents to reflect on how the African-American community continues to find ways to build communities and thrive against insurmountable odds.


How our honorees are selected

Honorees are selected using the following criteria:

  • An African American leader 
  • A resident of Anne Arundel County 
  • Not a previous award recipient
  • An individual who exemplifies this year’s theme
