BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Black History Month ends in a few days and that’s still enough time to celebrate African-American heroes, especially those from Maryland.

As Gigi Barnett reports, Saturday the state’s largest African-American museum opened their doors for free.

Much of Maryland’s African-American history sits in the halls of Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore City. This weekend, it celebrated Black History Month and offered visitors a chance to learn something new.

“I was just taking a look here at McCready, Esther McCready, who was a nurse, and thought about my own mom, who was a nurse,” said museum visitor Bridget Darden.

Inside the museum’s atrium and theater, visitors got a chance to learn about community service organizations. Others just wanted a tour of the museum’s three galleries.

“They have to see a lot of different things and be exposed to a lot of different things, I feel,” said museum visitor Jason Taylor.

The admission was waived Saturday and for some folks, that meant no excuses not to visit.

“It was just free, so I came on down,” said museum visitor Yvette Scott.

The Black History Celebration at the museum was sponsored by Verizon.
