The Struggle and the Urban South: The Legacy of Confronting Jim Crow in Baltimore

Baltimore, one of the South’s largest cities, was a crucible of segregationist laws and practices. In this session, Morgan State University Associate Professor David Taft Terry explores the historical importance of African American resistance to Jim Crow culture in the South’s largest cities after WWII. This resistance, he argues, drew from the older protest traditions, and would ultimately inspire a national civil rights movement of the 1960s.


This session is part of the Winter Speaker Series, which considers how we remember the past, unpacking stories of Chesapeake history with a focus on what our understanding of the past means for our future. This series will take place virtually via Zoom.
