Voices of Baltimore will be shown twice in the next week on MPT.
As African American History Month begins, a Towson University-produced documentary will be featured on Maryland Public Television.
Voices of Baltimore preserves the rich oral histories of a quickly diminishing population of African-Americans
who lived through the era of legal segregation—Jim Crow laws—by documenting the lives
of individuals who attended segregated schools or experienced desegregation before
and after the historic 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education ruling.
