What do you know about Lakeland, a historically significant and tight-knit African American community in College Park? Did you know that this community fought to see their children education in their community – and many lost their homes when the Prince George’s County School Board decided to build a new school on land occupied by houses, including that of Maxine Gross’s grandmother? When asked about it, “my grandmother said she could build another house; children should be educated in their own community.” More from Maxine and Lakeland here.
