Even though it is March, Old Man Winter continues to hang on with strength. A full day of snow falling on the Chesapeake Bay kept things quiet on the roads.
The Naval Academy Bridge stood strong against the falling snow flakes, leading me towards Annapolis.
I went to say hello to Alex Haley. The Kunta Kinte Memorial is the only memorial in the U.S. that marks the actual place of where an enslaved African, Kunta Kinte, arrived in 1767. Haley sits there with an open book, telling the story to three children. It is the sharing of stories from generation to generation that keeps memories alive.
Haley faces Annapolis harbor, well known as Ego Alley. A harbor that has continued to thrive as life changes around it.
Walking in the snow towards the Maryland State House, the oldest state capitol dating back to 1772. For a short time, Annapolis was the nation’s capitol and congress met in the state house.
A true leader in civil rights and the pursuit of liberty, Thurgood Marshall is remembered in a memorial adjacent to the Maryland State House. The first African American appointed in the U.S. Supreme Court, Marshall instrumental in the NAACP.
In the snow, Annapolis looks completely different. A place steeped in history with each footstep.
