On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I’m thinking about what he accomplished in his life, how other people in the civil rights movement felt about him, and more specifically, I’m thinking about Maryland’s civil rights movement.
On Thursday, February 23, MdHS will host a panel discussion, Seen & Heard: Maryland’s Civil Rights Movement in Photographs and Oral Histories, to discuss the Henderson Photograph Collection, McKeldin-Jackson Oral History Project and Maryland in the era of civil rights. An accompanying exhibition of Paul Henderson’s photographs will also be on display outside of the library. The event is free and open to the public.
