Morgan State University (Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum)

Log Number: MH-251932-OMS-22

Morgan State University's Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum will expand its programs and educational curriculum geared toward middle and high school students by incorporating experiences of Baltimore’s leadership in the “Long Civil Rights Movement.” The museum will retain its full-time program and education coordinator, who will develop educational programs, schedule school visits, lead public programs, coordinate the docent training program, and facilitate partnerships with Baltimore City Schools. In partnership with the Quarles Institute, the museum will engage students from Baltimore City public high schools for paid summer internships to encourage interest in careers in museums or other cultural organizations as they gain hands-on experience in research, preventive conservation, critical thinking, interpretation, and other museum-related skills. The project will expand the reach of the museum’s educational curriculum, potentially serving 1,800-2,400 new students in 45 schools.
