The Black Saga Competition is an exciting learning program for elementary and middle school students. For more than two decades, tens of thousands of elementary and middle school students in Maryland and Virginia have enjoyed this award-winning learning program. The Black Saga Competition is sponsored by the Center for Geographic Education at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and the Black Saga Competition Foundation. The Competition helps students answer key social studies questions:

  • What happened in the past?
  • How am I connected to those in the past?
  • How can the perspective we have about our own life experiences be viewed as part of the larger human story across time?



The Black Saga Competition encourages students to learn about the African American experience and provides an exciting forum for students to show how much they know about this important part of American history.
