  • Event Location Online

Did you know that there was once a thriving African American Community called Lakeland adjacent to the University, stretching from Route 1 in College Park to Lake Artemesia Park? Disrupted over the years by urban renewal, including actions by the city of College Park, the Maryland National Parks and Planning Commission, and the University of Maryland, Lakeland is still home to community members working to preserve its legacy and to seek restorative justice. Join the University of Maryland Emeritus/Emerita Association for a panel discussion of Lakeland’s history, the effort to preserve its heritage, and its current quest for justice.
