A panel discussion about “A View of 19th-century African American Education through the Lens of Contemporary Art”

Produced by the Baltimore National Heritage Area and presented by the Peale at Carroll Mansion, 800 E. Lombard Street, FREE!

Artists and historians meet in this panel discussion about the research behind the Peale’s current exhibition, RENOVATIONS: A Story of Edifice and Ecclesiastical Influences on 19th Century African American Education, which was inspired by the Peale’s history as the Colored High and Grammar School from 1882 to 1889.

The panel will include Tonika Berkley, Dean Krimmel, and others, who have researched African American education in Baltimore in the 19th century. Also included are artists Mollye Bendell and Christopher Kojzar, who built on that research to create their current Ruby Award-winning installation at the Carroll Mansion (through March 1).

This lunchtime talk is FREE and presented by the Baltimore National Heritage Area’s “It’s More than History” lecture series. Bring a lunch, and visit the exhibition for free before or after the talk.

Additional lectures in March 27 and April 24.
