When Highland Beach was incorporated in 1922 it became the first African-American municipality in Maryland. Although founded as a summer resort, it is now a town of year-round residents who choose not to permit commercial establishments. There are some ninety homes, many of them still owned and occupied by descendants of the original settlers.

It's #Juneteenth #EatRed One of the most fascinating things about early Juneteenth celebrations is that included plenty of red foods: #hibiscustea #watermelon #strawberries #redpop #redsoda and more Red was understood to represent the blood shed by #enslaved people and as a form of remembrance of those who died enslaved #FreedomDay #Dinner1865
