In 1998, the Maryland African American Museum Corporation was created as a public instrumentality of the State and as an independent agency of State government (Chapter 428, Acts of 1998). The Corporation is to plan, develop, and manage a Maryland museum of African-American history and culture in Baltimore City in cooperation with the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, State government agencies, and public and private institutions. At least once every five years, the Corporation will prepare a strategic plan setting goals and priorities for the museum.

The Corporation's Board of Directors consists of thirty-two members. Thirty-one members are appointed by the Governor to four-year terms. The Mayor of Baltimore serves ex officio. (Code 1957, Art. 41, secs. 20-101 through 20-113).
