Talk: The Road to Jim Crow

1 p.m.: Dorchester County Historical Society, 1003 Greenway Drive, Cambridge, MD

A talk on "The Road to Jim Crow: the African American Struggle on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, 1860-1915" has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 17  at 11am. This presentation, based on the book by the same name will be led by the author, C. Christopher Brown. Making extensive use of primary sources, Mr. Brown has broken new ground and filled a long overlooked gap in Maryland’s Eastern Shore history. He follows the journey from the end of slavery and all that promises through the reality of the lynch law, segregation and systematic efforts at disenfranchisement. This offering is very appropriate and compelling as Cambridge became the center of African American political and cultural life. The author is a retired civil rights attorney and professor at the University of Maryland’s Carey School of Law. The stories that Mr. Brown has unearthed during research for the book, while enlightening in the worst sense of the word, also serve to inspire. Mr. Brown will have copies of his book for sale with his autograph. This series is offered by the Dorchester County Historical Society and will be held at the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester, which is located at 1003 Greenway Drive in Cambridge, Maryland. Additional parking is available on the LaGrange Avenue side of the campus. For more information, please call 410-228-7953. This is a free public offering although donations are appreciated.
