The Struggle and The Urban South (Winter Speaker Series)

March 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm

As part of Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Winter Speaker Series, The Struggle and the Urban South: The Legacy of Confronting Jim Crow in Baltimore, will take place March 10.  This speaker series continues on Wednesdays through March 17.

All sessions will take place virtually.

Topic discussion: Baltimore, one of the South’s largest cities, was a crucible of segregationist laws and practices. In this session, Morgan State University Associate Professor David Taft Terry explores the historical importance of African American resistance to Jim Crow culture in the South’s largest cities after WWII. This resistance, he argues, drew from the older protest traditions, and would ultimately inspire a national civil rights movement of the 1960s.

Cost is $7.50 per session. You may also register for the full series online.
