The 139th anniversary of the Emancipation of Slaves in Maryland, will
be celebrated at two different sites with a variety of activities.
Oakley cabin will be open for tours, with living history portrayers,
and reenactors from the 54th Massachusetts regiment. Hot cider and
cornbread will be served. At 2 pm, the event will culminate with a
program of celebration with Gospel choirs and a speaker, C.R. Gibbs,
author of Black, Copper, and Bright: The District of Columbia's
Black Civil War Regiment. Oakley Cabin, which served as a home to
both slaves and free Blacks, is Montgomery County's premier African
American historic site open to the public. The 1820's cabin is near
Blue Mash swamp, known as a refuge for fugitives seeking freedom from
bondage.

The Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African Art Gallery houses many
artifacts associated with slavery in America. It will be open from
11:30 am until 4:00 pm with lunch available for purchase from Ribs -
on-the-Run. [another example of how organizers don't think about how the sponsor's message can conflict with the theme of the program, or perhaps they did, hmmmmmmmm Confused]
