A pair of celebrations

The Banneker Douglass Museum in Annapolis has two celebrations in store this weekend to tie up Black History Month.

Today, the museum will celebrate its 15th anniversary and honor local seniors who helped advance civil rights in Annapolis at the same time.

Organizers will present awards and share the history of the museum. The program begins at 6: 30 p.m. at the museum.

On Saturday, the museum sponsors the play "Banneker, Bates & Stanton -- Still Standing" about the museum, which once was the home of Mount Moriah A.M.E. Church, Wiley H. Bates High School and Stanton Community Center, three buildings in Annapolis of significance to the African-American community.

Joyce Black of the Maryland Commission of African American History wrote the play, which will star children from the First Baptist Church in Annapolis.

Tickets are available at the door at 84 Franklin St. The cost is $15 for adults and $7.50 for children age 12 and younger.

Information: 410-974-2893.
