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, religious, cultural, and political 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.   

The mission of the African-American Community Roundtable (AACR) is to improve the overall quality of life for African-Americans throughout Howard County. To fulfill this mission, the AACR is focused on ensuring that families are connected to critical resources that ultimately empower residents and encourage social and economic well-being. The AACR facilitates discussions and initiatives with the goal of increasing access to opportunities for African-American families and help them gain full participation in the broader community.


The African-American Community Roundtable centers its activities around five key objectives: Education, Economic Empowerment, Health, Political Advocacy, and Strategic Communications. Through collaborative efforts with Howard County government, local businesses and member organizations the AACR offers several free activities in the community including education forums, health fairs and information sessions. In addition to providing the community with information and opportunities to engage in conversations with county leaders, the AACR also conducts research that is critical in understanding the extent to which inequalities exist and development of viable policy relevant solutions.
