Overview

Attend a free panel discussion at the Maryland Historical Society about recent enhancements to the permanent exhibition "Divided Voices: Maryland in the Civil War" that reveal new stories about the African American experience before, during and after the war. New interactive elements also draw visitors into the dialogue about the conflict and ask them, “Are we still divided?” Scholars Dr. Martha Jones (Johns Hopkins University), Dr. Richard Bell (University of Maryland, College Park) and Chris Haley (Maryland State Archives) will discuss the complexities of the African American experience in colonial and antebellum Maryland and take audience questions. A reception and walkthrough of the exhibit follow the discussion.
