Reginald F. Lewis Museum

830 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202 www.lewismuseum.org

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum opened in 2005, representing the character, pride, struggle and accomplishments of Maryland African Americans. It is named for Reginald F. Lewis, a Dunbar High School alum who went on to attend Harvard Law School, and demonstrate tremendous business success, becoming the first African-American CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Before his death in 1993, Lewis expressed interest in building a museum to African American culture; the Reginald F. Lewis Foundation provided a $5 million grant for the construction of just such a museum in Baltimore. The award-winning building is one of the most unique and significant constructions in the city in recent history, and was the first major building in downtown Baltimore designed by African American architects. The building’s five-story atrium provides ample light to the core of the building, which includes space for special exhibitions, a recording studio, a 200 seat auditorium and a resource center. ┬áCome tour the museum and check out the special exhibitions “Kin Killin’ Kin” and “Now, That’s Cool!”.
