The Legacy of Brown v. Board: Community Mingle

May 17, 2024, marks the 70th anniversary of the pivotal Brown vs. Board of Education decision. How have our own communities and learning spaces been impacted since that decision, and what were the experiences of those who witnessed public school desegregation first-hand? Join us for a communal evening mingle in our civil rights exhibition, Passion & Purpose. Families, friends, and neighbors are invited to share their stories and reflect on the ongoing legacy of desegregation in public schools. Refreshments will be provided. Museum admission is free for the duration of this event.

We are honored to be joined by special guests Howell S. Baum, former Professor of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Maryland and author of “Brown” in Baltimore: School Desegregation and the Limits of Liberalism; and Dr. JosĂ© Anderson, Professor of Law at University of Baltimore and author of Genius for Justice: Charles Hamilton Houston and the Reform of American Law.
