Explore the Civil Rights Era in Anne Arundel County

A new virtual tour of the local Civil Rights era is now available online.

From the county government’s press release: “This online story map features more than 50 oral history interviews collected from residents across the County, and is presented as a tour of local places, people, and everyday experiences during a time of segregation. It documents spaces of leisure and recreation, where people of color could gather and enjoy solidarity and empowerment; places like stores, ballfields, beaches, juke joints, movie theaters, beauty salons, and barber shops.”

We hope tutors and students will check this wonderful learning tool out here.
