QuanderQuality is the operational name of a multi-faceted entity that was created to establish and deliver high-quality professional services in a number of disciplines. Initially conceived in 1984 as the Quander Historical Society, Inc., QuanderQuality was founded to document, preserve, protect, and share the legacy of the Quander Family, one of America’s oldest, consistently documented African-American families, with consistency since 1684 in Maryland. The society has broadened its outreach into branches, to provide tourism in the Greater Washington, D.C. area, as well as book publishing, and historical memorabilia.
Rohulamin Quander, author and multi-generational Washingtonian, is a member of the internationally renowned Quander Family, whose American lineage traces back almost 350 years in the Maryland and Virginia area. The family’s history includes involuntary servitude to George Washington at his Mount Vernon plantation. He earned both his B.A. and J.D. degrees from Howard University, Washington, D.C. Quander is a retired Senior Administrative Judge for the District of Columbia.
Since 1684, an enduring African American Legacy
The selected title of this book, THE QUANDERS – Since 1684, an Enduring African American Legacy, is self-explanatory and becomes more so once the reader delves into the content. Tracing the legacy of Henry Quando and Margrett Pugg, his wife, and their progeny, from 1684 to the present, unfolds a story of triumph and sustained accomplishment beyond and in spite of whatever racially-inspired obstacles were placed as inhibitors on the road to success.
