AACR-Howard.org - Howard County-Maryland Mission.png


We understand that we have a lot to celebrate in Howard County. But, we also understand that when it comes to the statistics concerning African Americans, we have a long way to go. The achievement gap is undeniable, African Americans make up a significant portion of the uninsured in the county and in many cases, resources exist but many in the African American community don’t know where to find them.


The African-American Community Roundtable is an active coalition of social, civic, professional, spiritual and cultural groups committed to enhancing the overall quality of life for African-Americans throughout Howard County.  Through civic engagement and community service the AACR raises awareness, empowers residents and works toward reducing inequalities among African-Americans.
