One of the most intriguing stories in Spectrum of Fashion is the discovery of livery worn by Tilghman Davis and Tom Brown, two men formerly enslaved at Hampton—the Ridgely family estate that is now a National Historic Site in Towson. The livery will be a point of departure for exploring companies such as Brooks Brothers. In the 19th century, Brooks Brothers provided garments for coachmen, footmen, and chauffeurs in wealthy households, many in the antebellum South. Like many northern commercial institutions, the celebrated clothier benefited from the institution of slavery.
At the turn of the 20th century, couturières—female designers and sellers of high fashion—pushed fashion in bold new directions. Explore the work of Jeanne Paquin, Jeanne Lanvin, and Madeleine Vionnet, the Parisian couturiers who ushered in a new era of fashion, creating comfortably chic clothing that appealed to the active, modern woman.
In early 2008, Sam Sessa (WTMD) had an outlandish idea: take two Baltimore musicians who had never heard of each other, pair them up and force them to write four original songs in six weeks. The two musicians he picked couldn't have come from more different backgrounds. Caleb Stine was an Americana singer/songwriter. Saleem, an MC who liked vintage hip hop. But the songs they wrote quickly displayed a creative kinship that has resulted in a full album, multiple performances and a long friendship.

Before language existed to identify persons whose gender expression and/or sexuality were non-conforming, 19th and early 20th century local newspapers offered tantalizing clues that all was not straight and narrow. A few decades later, the 1930s previewed the openness of recent times before giving way to a darker, more perilous era for LGBTQ+ people in the 1950s. After reviewing these twilight years, this program will look at the beginnings of the current movement toward LGBTQ+ visibility and rights.
