Additional Details

The first Maryland Colored State Industrial Fair was held in 1888, but went on a long hiatus before being revived in Baltimore in 1907. It featured parades, a speech by the governor, and prizes for "farm products, work done at the industrial and regular schools, and specimens of the work by colored women."
