Kinte-Haley Foundation Wins 2003 Historic Annapolis Foundation Reservation Award

The Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation, in partnership with the Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference & Visitors Bureau, won a 2003 Annual Preservation Award for its brochure entitled “African-American Heritage in Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, Maryland.” The award for outstanding preservation efforts within the city of Annapolis was presented today during the Historic Annapolis Foundation’s Annual Meeting at the William Paca House and Gardens.

Historic Annapolis Foundation President Dr. Gregory Stiverson says this is the Foundation’s highest honor, given to individuals and organizations whose work and individual service is helping to preserve the historic integrity of Maryland’s capital city. “This is the Foundation’s once-a-year opportunity to publicly thank our preservation partners. Their individual, corporate and community efforts are world-class examples of how an entire community can work together to maintain and enhance a city of 17th-century design that complements 21st-century living.”

The brochure was funded in part with State funds from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority, and received the endorsement and active support of the Annapolis, Londontown, and South County Heritage Area.

The 16-page 32-panel brochure is designed to provide the visitor with a comprehensive planning tool for spending anywhere from a day to a week in Anne Arundel County. It is the first time that an African-American tourism brochure of the region focuses on the history of both free blacks and slaves.

The Kinte-Haley Foundation developed the concept for the brochure, conducted the research, and wrote the copy. The Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference & Visitor’s Bureau provided editiorial assistance and was the lead partner in marketing and distributing the brochure. Graphic design, layout, and brochure production was done by The Souza Agency of Annapolis, Maryland.

For copies of the brochure, please call the Kinte-Haley Foundation at 410-841-6920 or the Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference & Visitors Bureau at 410-280-0445.
