Civil War to Civil Rights: Discover a Century of Baltimore History by Bus
April 11 10:00 AM-2:30 PM - $35
Join Preservation Maryland and Baltimore Heritage for a unique bus tour covering over a century of Baltimore history from the Pratt Street Riot in 1861 to the hard-fought battle for African-American equality and opportunity in the 1950s and 1960s. Baltimore’s Civil Rights heritage is about more than sit-ins and picket lines. The fight for African-American freedom and justice includes the stories of Union army camps and U.S. Colored Troops, black labor organizers in the late 19th century and the fight against segregated housing in the first few decades of the 20th century.
Our tour leaders include Paige Glotzer, a Dean’s Teaching Fellow at Johns Hopkins University and former Lord Baltimore Fellow at the Maryland Historical Society, Eli Pousson with Baltimore Heritage, and other invited guests. This half-day bus tour is limited to 25 people and starts and ends at the Frederick Douglas – Isaac Myers Maritime Museum with stops at the President Street Station and West Baltimore Civil Rights landmarks. The tour will include a boxed lunch and will travel in a comfortable mini-coach bus
