Morgan State University's Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum will grow its capacity and develop curriculum to share and incorporate stories of local leaders in the national narrative of the freedom struggle. This will help the museum offer more educational opportunities for Baltimore's middle and high school students and teachers. A new position, a part-time education coordinator, will schedule school tours, present public programs, and lead a docent training program. In partnership with Baltimore City Schools, the Maryland Historical Society, and Baltimore Heritage, the museum will develop a curriculum that includes field studies such as walking tours through historically impactful communities, field trips to relevant sites, and using primary source documents. The curriculum is intended to foster understanding and pride in Baltimore's civil rights contributions.
