The Legacy Continues for Wiley H. Bates High School

Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center

The Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center and Memorial are part of a $27 million dollar complex called The Wiley H. Bates Heritage Park which opened in a public celebration, September 2006. The Legacy Center is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of Wiley H. Bates High School, formerly (1932 to 1966) the only high school for African Americans in Anne Arundel County. It is a unique cultural arts heritage center displaying historical documents and collections that preserve the African American experience.

 

Mission: The Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center, Inc. will honor and give substance to the contributions of the founder, faculty, staff and students of Wiley H. Bates High School, which operated for over thirty years as the only high school for African American students in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. This historical, cultural and educational center will collect, preserve, present, interpret and make available for research its holdings in order to provide insight and perspective on the roles of education, economic opportunity and service for citzens of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County and other jurisdictions.  Located in  what was once a segregated community, this nonprofit institution will serve as a touchstone for understanding and supporting diversity and continual renewal for the community.

 The world in its very heart admires the stern, determined doer: It sees in him its best sight, its brightest object, its richest treasure. Drive right along then; in whatever you undertake consider yourself amply sufficient for the deed and you will succeed.

—Wiley H. Bates
