A message from Dr. Regina Faden, Executive Director of Historic St. Mary’s City
For fifty years, we at Historic St. Mary’s City have been proud to tell the story of religious freedom planted here in Maryland by the Calvert family, but we have not told the whole story. A year ago, we asked for the opinions of a diverse collective of respected community members and they told us, “you need to do better and we are willing to help you do better if you are willing to listen to us and to make real change.” It has been a year of reflection and learning from community members for us at HSMC. We will contribute to change by telling everyone’s story. It is only together that we can dismantle the systems that perpetuate racism and begin to lift the constant burden of sorrow.”
