African American History Free Series

African African American History Free Lecture Series
Presented in partnership with the African American Resources-Cultural and Heritage (AARCH) Society

The African American History lecture series, which was organized for Frederick Community College (FCC) and is presented by instructors from the African American Resources-Cultural and Heritage (AARCH) Society, offers opportunities to expand students’ knowledge and understanding about present-day Frederick by learning about the history of African Americans in Frederick County. The lectures provide both regional and national perspectives ranging from 18th-century enslavement to genealogy as well as perspectives on contemporary life in the county.

The African American Resources-Cultural and Heritage (AARCH) Society identifies, collects, preserves, and makes publicly accessible, through its programs and services, objects, artifacts, and stories about the history, rich heritage and culture, and the contributions of African Americans in Frederick County past and present. In doing so, the Society educates, enriches, and enlightens this and future generations. Through its programs, services, research, and activities, the Society also recognizes and celebrates the extraordinary resiliency of African Americans in Frederick County.
