The Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum has designed a Civil Rights curriculum to highlight the long civil rights movement in Baltimore and beyond from the Civil War through the Modern Civil Rights Movement.

We are looking for several 8th-12th grade social studies/U.S. history BCPS teachers to implement our curriculum in their classrooms and provide us with feedback.

Baltimore has a rich Civil Rights legacy, one that Baltimore youth should have access to.

On this day in 1889, Dr. Lillie Carroll Jackson, also known as the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement,” was born in Baltimore, MD, nearly 25 years after slavery was abolished. Fighting for voting rights, equal pay & job opportunities, and pushing to integrate schools and public facilities-- Dr. Jackson became a prominent Black leader in Baltimore and her efforts made a difference not only in Baltimore, but on a national scale.

The Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum was founded to honor Dr. Jackson and to continue her legacy of civil rights and community advocacy. By sharing her story, we hope to educate and inspire the next generation of Civil Rights leaders.

Happy birthday Dr. Jackson!

JMJP Director Dr. Charles L. Chavis, Jr. has released the following statement on the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd:

"On behalf of the John Mitchell, Jr. Program for History, Justice and Race, I condemn the murder of George Floyd and the scores of Black lives that have been cut down as a result of the pervasive disease of anti-Blackness. I also applaud the jury that convicted Derek Chauvin, recognizing that what they did was their job, a job that has failed to be done in the cases of so many other murdered Black men and women. They did the right thing. They held an officer of the law accountable under the law for murdering an American citizen, a Black man.

However, as America continues to traverse this racial reckoning, we need to understand what this trial represents. Leading up to today’s jury verdict, once again Black America was on trial, this time alongside an America that for over 400 years has been kicking and screaming to avoid confronting its systemic anti-Blackness. We must acknowledge the trauma that Black America has endured and the ways in which this verdict must be understood as the first step of many more that must yet be taken."

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.

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!
