Event description

Description

Dr. Martha Jones, The Society of Black Alumni Presidential Professor and a professor of history at Johns Hopkins University, will give a talk drawing upon material from her upcoming book, Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America.

The talk is part of a day of special events at Homewood Museum for a special day of free events, including a preview of the museum’s new interprative tour, Families at Homewood, which explores the lives of the free and enslaved individuals at Homewood in the early 19th century.

Schedule of Events - all events are free, but registration is required for the talk.

11 a.m. outdoor performance by the Gospel Choir at Johns Hopkins.

11:30 a.m., Dr. Martha Jones, "Birthright Citizens: Former Slaves & Claims of Belonging in Baltimore City"

12 p.m.-4 p.m. Guided tours of the museum, with a tour departing every hour, on the hour. (Last tour departs at 3 p.m.) Families at Homewood, the new interpretative tour previewing this day, is the result of a multi-year research project into the lives of the enslaved community at Homewood during the early 19th century. It explores how the fates of the house's free and enslaved residents became inextricably linked in ways both typical and surprising. Also on view: Homewood's current exhibition, More Than A Name: Enslaved Families at Historic Homewood, as well as wool-spinning demonstrations by historian Rose Gallenberger.
