Morgan State University Opening Restored Civil Rights Museum
By Sentinel News Service
Published June 14, 2016

Morgan State University is hosting the opening of a newly renovated civil rights museum. University President David Wilson is joining state and local leaders on Saturday for a ribbon cutting ceremony in Baltimore for the Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum.

The ceremony comes after a $3 million renovation project. The museum has two period rooms and six galleries of exhibits throughout the four-story row home.

Jackson served for more than three decades as president of the Baltimore chapter of the NAACP. Her home in Baltimore’s Bolton Hill community was a regular meeting place for organizing civil rights campaigns. When she died in 1975, she asked that her home be used as a museum to honor people who fought bigotry.
