Until September 28, Calvert Library Prince Frederick is hosting the Maryland Sesquicentennial 1865 Slave Emancipation Quilt that was coordinated and designed by Dr. Joan M. E. Gaither in conjunction with the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture.  Each county plus Baltimore City designed their quilt block in response to direction to reflect stories of people, places and events in their areas at the time of Emancipation.  Visit the library to see this masterpiece in person.
