Travel Back in Time with Ms. Masie

Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture


Relive the musical heart of Baltimore with a virtual stroll along Pennsylvania Avenue of yesteryear and hear the sounds of jazz greats like Chick Webb. Visit a one-room school house and learn about the work of Thurgood Marshall in desegregating public education. All with your guide, Ms. Masie. Through dramatic interpretation, discover pivotal moments in history as Ms. Masie leads you on a journey of her memories of Jim Crow Maryland. Become empowered at a protest demonstration of a segregated restaurant with Lillie Carroll Jackson, organizer of the Baltimore branch of the NAACP. Participants will travel through the museum’s exhibits alongside Ms. Masie as she weaves stories of prominent African Americans’ strength, courage and determination.

If they so choose, participants have the opportunity to experience one of the following additional experiences: a genealogy session in the museum’s resource center, a Q&A with the actor or a learning session focused on the museum’s hat collection.
