There is a real sense of community among the members of JJC who all share a passion for African-American and African art.
JJC is one of the oldest African-American museum support groups in the country. Named after an 18th-century African-American portrait painter who lived and worked in Maryland, its mission is to forge meaningful connections between Baltimore’s African-American communities and the BMA by promoting and highlighting the achievements of African-American artists.
