Description

Voices of Baltimore: Life Under Segregation (69 minutes)

Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 1 pm – 3 pm

This film captures the rich oral histories of prominent African Americans who grew up and lived through the era of legal segregation in the Mason/Dixon border area of Baltimore. The narratives document individuals who attended segregated schools before and following the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v Board of Education ruling. Film participants and panelists include:

Robert Bell: First African American Chief Judge on the Maryland Court of Appeals – at 16 he was the lead plaintiff in Bell v Maryland which helped push America towards desegregation / Dr. Patricia Welch: Was part of the first desegregated class at Eastern High School and is the Dean of Education at Morgan State University / Evelyn Chatmon: First female African American Assistant School Superintendent for Baltimore County Public Schools / Dr. Walter Arthur Gill: One of the first African Americans to graduate from Baltimore City College High School in 1955 / Francis Gill: Frances was the last group of students to attend Coppin Normal Teachers College when it was located on Mount Street / Treopia Green Washington: Director of Special Initiatives, College of Education at Bowie State University and sister of Ernest Green of the Little Rock Nine.

“Voices of Baltimore: Life Under Segregation” is co-directed and co-produced by Towson University professors, Gary A. Homana, Morna McDermott McNulty, and Franklin Campbell Jones.

This program is in partnership with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights and Towson State University’s College of Education.
