During February, the African American History Club of Riderwood is sponsoring a number of activities for Riderwood residents. The theme for 2023 is Black Resistance.
Riderwood TV will be featuring daily African American Quotations on Channel 972 all during the month. The display case outside the Chapel has a display of Black Heritage postage stamps, and the Town Center Craft Room display has sculptures by Africans and African Americans.
