'African Descent' print to be unveiled Sunday

The Greater Glen Burnie chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women will unveil the print "Patriots of African Descent" by Cal Massey during ceremonies Sunday at the North County Library.

The numbered print was done to recognize black men who were part of George Washington's encampment at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777-1778 and the historic crossing of the Delaware River. It will be the only print honoring African Americans in the military displayed in any county facility, said Christine Davenport, chapter president.

More than 100 people are expected to attend the 5:30 p.m. ceremonies and reception at the library, which will feature Anne Arundel County District Court Judge Clayton Greene Jr. The library, usually closed at that hour, will reopen for the unveiling. Information: 761-5763.

Bullet pierces bedroom wall

A 49-year-old woman reported to police that a bullet pierced the window of her home and lodged in the bedroom wall Monday.

The woman, who lives in the 7900 block of Oakwood Road, called police Tuesday when she found the window shade damaged, then noticed the hole in the wall.

The shot appears to have come from a small caliber handgun, the police report said.
