African Americans and Shipbuilding Traditions on the Chesapeake Bay

block Fredrick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park

This new Gateway on Baltimore’s inner harbor provides the best site-specific location to tell the African American shipbuilding story on the Chesapeake Bay. New comprehensive curriculum and programs will reach thousands of school groups and the visiting public with this important story. The K-12 curriculum will be shaped to explore the math, science and history of African American shipbuilding along with new programs for direct participation and hands-on learning activities with this historic maritime tradition. Students and the public will have multiple opportunities to participate in the reproduction of a working marine railway and by utilizing the skills of a professional wooden shipbuilder/educator will actively participate in the reconstruction and restoration of traditional Chesapeake wooden vessels.

Amount Funded: $110,000.00

Start Date: 08/25/2006
