Please join Goucher’s Special Collections & Archives team and the Maryland Historical Society in this expanded exploration of the acclaimed exhibit: Paul Henderson: Photographs from the Civil Rights Era. The first part of this program will be a “Virtual Field Trip” presented by museum professionals from MdHS. Using innovative technology, participants will take part in this online lesson, which will showcase primary source documents related to specific events in the desegregation movement in Maryland in the 1960s. After class, trained Goucher students will serve as Protesting your docents as you explore the provocative imagery captured by Baltimore photojournalist Paul Henderson, and now on display in the Goucher Archives Gallery. The exhibit includes documents from the African American community, and subjects include NAACP activities, protests, Morgan State University, athletic events, businesses, church groups, and everyday life in Baltimore during the Civil Rights era. Some of the familiar faces you will see include Thurgood Marshall, Dr. Lillie Carroll Jackson, and Pearl Bailey.
