To enhance student engagement with the legacy and history of the Civil Rights Movement, Lehigh is providing undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to visit Eastern Shore, Baltimore, and Annapolis, Maryland during Spring Break 2017. Led by Professors James Peterson and Natanya Duncan, students will travel by a chartered bus first to Eastern Shore where they will participate in the grand opening of the "Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park." The trip will then move on to Baltimore where students will visit the Dr. Lillie Carrol Jackson Civil Rights Museum, conduct a walking tour of the Historic Druid Park neighborhood, and participate in a guided tour of the famous Blacks in Wax Museum. From Baltimore, we will also visit the Maryland State Archives in Annapolis and have a hands-on experience exploring "From Frederick to Thurgood: Black Baltimore in Transition" led by Archivist Christopher Haley, great-nephew of Alex Haley who authored Roots. The trip will culminate with a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Additionally, there will be "free time" for students to explore the areas on their own.
