County Executive Steve Schuh, Community College President Dawn Lindsay Tour

Annapolis, MD (February 18, 2016) — In honor of Black History Month, County Executive Steve Schuh and Anne Arundel Community College President Dr. Dawn Lindsay this afternoon toured the “Perils and Progress – Civil Rights in America” art exhibit at the college campus in Arnold.

 

“The month of February is a time when we come together to honor the important impact Africans Americans have had on our nation,” said Schuh. “This art exhibit provides an opportunity for our citizens to feel that impact first hand.”

 

"We’re very pleased to continue bringing exhibits and activities like this to the community,” said Lindsay. “AACC is very committed to inclusivity and meeting the needs of a diverse community, especially as demographics in Anne Arundel County and across our nation continue to shift.  It is through education that we can promote a better understanding of experiences and viewpoints that are different from our own.”

 

The County Executive and Dr. Lindsay were joined by two artists, Preston Sampson and Sharon Fox-Mould, who helped guide the tour of the exhibit.

 

The Black History Month art exhibit features works by African American artists from Just Lookin' Art Gallery in Hagerstown MD. Pieces that depict the Civil Rights Movement continue to be on display between until February 26th in the Pascal Art Gallery. The Gallery maintains hours Monday thru Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
