Professor Dale Green speaks in East New Market, Maryland (Dorchester County) about ancestor Reverend Samuel Green [October 6, 2018, 11:00 am @ Faith Community United Methodist Church]
The public is cordially invited to the 17th annual Faith Community United Methodist Church in East New Market, MD (Site #21 along the Tubman Byway) for the annual Heritage Day on Saturday, October 6, starting at 11:oo am. This event will feature a celebration of African-American music, dance, food, and fellowship.
The theme for 2018 is “Return to Our Roots.” The keynote speaker will be Dale Glenwood Green, an Eastern Shore native and Professor of Architecture and Chair of Historic Preservation Program at Morgan State University.
Prof. Green’s ancestor was Rev. Samuel Green, who was a freed slave, pastor, and collaborator with Harriet Tubman in the 1800s. Green was eventually caught and imprisoned for possessing a copy of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s abolitionist novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The sentence was 10 years. He lived in East New Market, Maryland, and preached at what is today Faith Community United Methodist Church (Site #21 along the Tubman Byway). Rev. Green then went on to be one of the founders of Morgan State University, where his descendant Dale Green works today.
Music will be provided by Waugh Chapel United Methodist Church Gospel Choir and the Green Family Ensemble. All are welcome. This event has been sponsored by the East New Market Town Council, Dorchester Elks Lodge #223, and the Heart of the Chesapeake Heritage Area.
Faith Community is located near the corner of Routes 14 and 392 in East New Market, Maryland.

On Sunday, August 20, 2018 Morgan State Professor and Eastern Shoreman Douglassonian Dale Glenwood Green addressed the congregation and visitors of Union United Methodist Church, a pillar in the African-American community of St. Michaels, Maryland since 1852.
With an uplifting message combining personal and local history, examples and testimonials of faith and Biblical verse Professor Green acknowledged the extensive network of his current family, which includes members of the Douglass Family and Bailey Tribe, and his ancestors which include Bishop Alexander Wayman and Reverend Samuel Green.
Thank you to Star Democrat for their continued thorough coverage of Frederick Douglass celebrations and recognition across Talbot County and the entire Shore.
Nice to meet and speak with Kayla Rivas yesterday. Hope to continue to speak with reporters of the Shore’s paper of record. Many years from now historians and family members will review these articles with assurance the Shore uplifted the legacy and heritage of its native son with the assistance of duty-bound information ministers such as Professor Green.
