Free Showing of "Voices of Baltimore: Life Under Segregation"

This film chronicles the lived experience of African Americans who thrived in spite of Jim Crow, a system of legal segregation. Accordingly, it documents the lives of individuals who attended segregated schools and experienced the desegregation of schools as a result of the historic 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education ruling. There will be a panel discussion following the movie with the director and film participants.


Panelists include: Dr. David T. Terry, Dr. Patricia L. Welch, Chief Judge Robert M. Bell (Retired), and Pace J. McConkie (Director, Robert M. Bell Center for Civil Rights in Education).
