pearl Bailey: FHN with Stanton Center
As Future History Now continues to learn about Annapolis' local history, we look for ways to weave beloved stories into our modern landscape, and pass the knowledge on to a younger generation. This Pearl Bailey mural commemorates "The Harlem of Annapolis," an area that used to be filled with hotels, music venues, and other businesses that served the African American community. We listened to recordings of Ms. Bailey as we painted in on-and-off drizzle and rain. Erik Evans of the Annapolis Arts District reached out to local eatery Luna Blu, who generously donated a pizza lunch both days.
