Voices of Baltimore captures and preserves the rich oral histories of an aging and diminishing population of African Americans who grew up in the Mason/Dixon border area of Baltimore and lived through the Jim Crow era of legal segregation. The narratives document the lives of individuals who attended segregated schools and experienced both segregation and desegregation before and following the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v Board of Education ruling. It is a must see! Film participants include Dr. Patrica Welch, Dean of Education at Morgan State University; Chief Judge Robert Bell, first African American to serve on Maryland’s highest court, and Treopia Washington, sister of Ernest Green from the Little Rock 9. Filmmakers Morna McDermott McNulty and Gary Homana of Towson University will be present for a Q&A and discussion following the 55 minute screening. All our welcome, please bring your lunch and your questions.
