This memorial garden was commissioned the 14th of April, 1998
and is dedicated to our African American ancestors who
have constructed, educated, served and contributed to
the University of Maryland. African Americans - both enslaved
and free - were a critical building block in the birth
and success of the university.

The Black Faculty and Staff Association and the
University of Maryland pay tribute to those giants who
have paved the way for African American faculty,
staff and students to succeed throughout the "struggle".

Dedicated the 15th day of June, 1998

"MAAFA?Don't ever forget. ?We won't"
