For decades, Captain Brown took countless African Americans to #BrownsGrove and other points of the Chesapeake Bay.


Young music giants such as #ChickWebb and #EubieBlake often performed aboard his vessels, to name a few.


Thanks for a great article by Wendy Mitman Clarke, featuring several rare Brown's Grove artifacts from the #NannyJackAndCoArchives.
