 The Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African American History of our Area.

Natalie Williams, from the Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African Art Museum, will share the history of the African American people of Montgomery County dating back to pre-Civil War times.  Sandy Spring was one of the first free settlements of African Americans during the 19th century. Ms. Williams will talk about the purpose and content of the museum.  She will share some fascinating genealogical information about Sandy Spring, Quakers, and African Americans in Montgomery County.

Natalie Williams is a member of the Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African Art Gallery Board of Directors and serves on the Education and Outreach Committee   She is a lifelong resident of Sandy Spring and a family genealogist. Ms. Williams has done extensive research on the Black Kinship Communities of Montgomery County, MD tracing their roots through the African Diaspora into slavery, the journey to freedom on the Underground Railroad, and the continued existence and prosperity of the kinship communities today.
