Today we are highlighting Victorine Q. Adams! She was the first African American woman to serve on the Baltimore City Council. Victorine Q. Adams founded a women's political club called the Colored Democratic Women's Campaign Committee in 1946, and was one of the five-woman to charter the Baltimore section of the National Council of Negro Women.

Her legacy continues to live on as she was inducted into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame in 2020, as well as having an archival collection of her contributions in the Earl S. Richardson Library at Morgan State University.

Womens History Month- Billie Holiday

Today we highlight Jazz Singer, Billie Holiday. She grew up in Fells Point, and she would sing at the Club Tijuana and Royal Theatre on Pennsylvania Avenue. During a time when venues were often segregated, she used her music to bring attention to civil rights issues such as lynching.

Serving as the President of the Baltimore branch of the NAACP from 1935 until her retirement in 1970, Lillie Carroll Jackson’s influence on Baltimore and the American Civil Rights Movement is undeniable.

Growing chapter membership into the thousands, leading campaigns for anti-lynching legislation, establishing job training programs, registering over 100,000 new Black voters, and leaving a desegregated city as her legacy— Mrs. Jackson is the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement and we honor her not only during Women’s History Month, but every day of the year!

#OTD On November 18, 1933, under the direction of Kiowa Costonie and the Citywide Young People’s Forum led by Juanita Jackson Mitchell, young African Americans picketed stores on Pennsylvania Avenue for refusing to hire African Americans.

This was one of many “Buy Where You Can Work” campaigns that were held in major cities during the Great Depression to protest Black Unemployment. These protests help lay the foundation for organized actions during the Civil Rights Movement.

The Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum is proud to congratulate Kamala Harris for becoming:

The First Woman Vice President-elect
The First Black Woman VP-elect
The First Indian American VP-elect
The first VP-elect to graduate from an HBCU.

2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and we thank all of the Black women who paved the way for Vice President-elect Harris. From Lillie Carroll Jackson’s efforts in Maryland during the early/mid 20th century to Stacey Abrams’ efforts in Georgia today, Black Women continue to fight on the frontlines for American Democracy.
