7:00pm – 7:45pm - The 12 Days of Historic Black Achievement in Baltimore City by Philip J. Merrill of Nanny Jack & Co.

Philip J. Merrill is the owner of Nanny Jack & Company, an African American heritage consulting business. He is currently serving in his seventh year as an appraiser for Chesapeake Collectibles on Maryland Public Television (MPT), a regional PBS affiliated show, and was an Antiques Roadshow appraiser for six seasons as a Black Americana specialist.

He is author of The Art of Collecting Black Memorabilia (1998) and The Black America Series: Baltimore (1999) and editor of The World War II Black Regiment that Built the Alaska Military Highway: A Photographic History (2002). Merrill is a producer of a forthcoming documentary, Tell Me More and Then Some , a film about jazz in Baltimore, which is slated for release in 2018. In 2013, Merrill's oral history was archived in the Library of Congress for his accomplishments as an African American business and education leader by The HistoryMakers . Merrill has also served on numerous heritage, preservation, and historical boards. Most notably, he served as a commissioner for the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation.

In addition, he recently consulted on a National Endowment for the Humanities grant at Lincoln University of Pennsylvania to highlight historic contributions of Lincoln University alumni. In 2001, the City Paper named Merrill as Baltimore’s Best Historian and in 2003, Towson State University named him a Distinguished Black Marylander. In 2006, the Eastern Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Virginia awarded him a Doctor of Humane Letters. In 2006-2007, he was an Open Society Institute Fellow. In May 2016, Merrill was inducted into the Friends School of Baltimore Athletic Hall of Fame and in September 2016, Merrill received the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award, which celebrates black entrepreneurs and professionals.
