Kamenetz to Announce The Louis S. Diggs Award Honoring African-American Heritage in Baltimore County

February 2016

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will announce The Louis S. Diggs Award, a new Baltimore County endeavor that will take place every year during Black History Month and presented to deserving recipients.

The award is named for Louis S. Diggs, a respected and distinguished authority on Baltimore County African-American history. Diggs’ research and historical perspective has guided him to publish 10 books; organize tours in the community; present lectures; and manage the Diggs-Johnson Museum in Granite.

After surprising Diggs with the declaration of naming the award for him, Kamenetz will reveal the 2016 recipients – Audrey Simmons and Ray Banks, who together brought the Hubert V. Simmons Museum for Negro Leagues Baseball to fruition.

The Simmons Museum is located in the Owings Mills library.
