Learn Your History, Mr. President: A Free Civil Rights History Walking Tour
August 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
In a series of hate-filled tweets over the last several days, the President of the United States disparaged Congressman Elija Cummings and everybody who lives in Baltimore. In addition to a multitude of things the President got wrong, he demonstrated a profound lack of understanding of American history, in particular our history of racism, discrimination, and the Civil Rights struggle for equal rights.
What is a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to Baltimore for nearly 60 years to do? We can’t change the President, but we can help share the history of incredible Baltimoreans who stood up and changed the course of history in our city and our country. Please join Baltimore Heritage director Johns Hopkins for a free walking tour of Market Center focusing on Baltimore’s Civil Rights history and how it remains critically relevant today. The tour will run from 11:00 am to noon. Immediately after the tour, all are invited to buy lunch on your own at Lexington Market and continue discussing Civil Rights in Baltimore and America. The tour is free and no registration is necessary.
