Thank you for being a part of this HISTORIC fundraiser! While other cities are taking down monuments, we have installed a sculpture to honor our own Harriet Tubman. She stands on the grounds where enslaved were auctioned and where Harriet's niece was heroically rescued!
Alpha Genesis CDC will begin construction on our new headquarters this spring!
We will be located on the 2nd floor of 428- 432 Race St. The Harriet Tubman Pavilion and the Harriet Tubman "Take My Hand" mural are in our rear parking lot!
Located in the rear of our headquarters building is the infamous Harriet Tubman "Take my Hand" mural. The mural viewing area will be updated with lighting, public accommodations and seating. Perfect for concerts, festivals and private parties! Stay Tuned!
Congratulations! Alpha Genesis CDC was awarded 4.5 million in State Historic Tax Credits for the F.W. Woolworth Company Building!!
This historic building is in need of a total renovation to restore it back to its former glory! Located at 420-422 Race Street, Cambridge, MD 21613 will be the future home of North Star Village, a mixed-use economic development project.

The Alpha Genesis Community Development Corporation (AGCDC) believes in the power of Art, Culture, Education and Community…and in the synergy and collective creativity of that collaboration.
Together they form the building blocks that enable the “building of Blocks”— economically strengthened neighborhoods and communities, rich in culture, history, and purpose.
Neighborhoods that paint a picture highlighting our similarities and supporting the individual and collective narratives of our City.
Organized by Alpha Genesis CDC, Dorchester Center for the Arts and the City of Cambridge.
This award recognizes an exceptional project, event, or activity conducted/sponsored by an organization, business, individual or local government that highlights Dorchester’s natural or cultural heritage and/or increases public awareness of its history, heritage, and cultural traditions.
In selecting the Day of Resilience for this honor, the Heritage Area Board noted that the event provided recognition and reflection on the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans to be sold into bondage in North America in 1619. If you were not present for this event, you missed a powerful experience.
A Day of Resilience began a drum call, pouring of libations, dance and spoken word at the Dorchester County Courthouse, which had been the site of slave auctions in the 1800s. It continued with a processional, “The Healing Journey,” from the Courthouse to the Harriet Tubman Mural at the Harriet Tubman Museum on Race Street.
The program continued with a mural dedication that featured more drumming, guest speakers and ribbon cutting with the artist Michael Rosato and other dignitaries. The day continued with special events that included keynote speaker Dr. Julius Garvey, a panel discussion with ambassadors from Mali, the Namibia and Togo, and a Souls at Sea remembrance ceremony commemorating the lives lost in the waters along the Middle Passage.
From the beginning of the event at the Dorchester County Courthouse through the programming throughout the day and into the closing activities during the gathering at Cannery Way, the celebration highlighted the cultural heritage of Dorchester’s African-American community and inspired a new appreciation and understanding of this heritage for the hundreds of attendees.
