BALTIMORE STORIES: NARRATIVES AND THE LIFE OF AN AMERICAN CITY

BALTIMORE STORIES

The University of Maryland Arts and Humanities Center for Synergy, Maryland Humanities and their major partners kicked off Baltimore Stories, funded by the NEH Humanities in the Public Square grant on March 23, 2016. The project was designed to help examine the roles of narrative in the life and identity of the city and will produce an educational website to help educators and the public in other cities investigate the roles of narrative and race.

This project included over 20 events held at various locations throughout Baltimore, March-December 2016. All events were free and open to the public. More information on these events can be found on our events calendar.

 

The Baltimore Stories project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is a collaboration between the University of Maryland, Maryland Humanities, the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Enoch Pratt Free Library and the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
