    This traveling exhibition offers a vivid glimpse into the daily lives of African-Americans in Maryland through the photography of Baltimore photojournalist Paul Henderson. For more than four decades, his lens captured scenes from the Civil Rights Movement, as well as prominent entertainers, politicians, and the vibrant African American community living in mid-20th century Baltimore. The prints in the exhibition are merely a fraction of the prolific photojournalist’s lifework and the collection housed by the Maryland Historical Society.

    The historic exhibition will be featured in the Student Center, lobby from February 4 - May 22, 2020. The lobby is open to the public during the building's normal hours, when the campus is open for business:
