Confederate Monuments in Wyman Park Dell and Charles Village: Tour and Discussion

December 5, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Free

Please join us for a walk around Wyman Park Dell and Charles Village to learn about ongoing review of Baltimore’s public Confederate monuments, the history behind these statues, and the complicated issue of public memory and public art. This tour is intended to create a safe place for learning and discussion about both Confederate and Union monuments and their meaning in the past and present. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Commission to Review Baltimore’s Public Confederate Monuments is currently developing recommendations for the treatment of four Confederate monuments located on city property. The Committee will hold its final hearing on December 15, and this tour is a good opportunity to learn more about the monuments and reflect on your own views ahead of time. You can also read a working draft of the Baltimore Heritage study of these monuments here.

This program is free but participants are welcome to make an optional $5 donation to support our work. We are trying to arrange for warm refreshments following the walk and allow further time for questions and discussion. Stay tuned for details! For questions, please contact Eli Pousson at 301-204-3337.

The tour will begin at the Union Soldier’s and Sailors Monument on Charles Street at the southeast corner of Wyman Park Dell and continue for about 1.5 miles before ending at the Lee-Jackson Monument across from the Baltimore Museum of Art.
