Join us for a guided tour of Baltimore’s Marble Hill neighborhood, which was the home to an astonishing amount of groundbreaking Civil Rights leaders. Reverend Harvey Johnson began one of the first collective action movements here in the 1880s. In the 1930s Lillie Carroll Jackson engaged youth in “The Movement” and pioneered new non-violent protest tactics that were later picked up in cities across the country. Thurgood Marshall grew up here, as did the chief lobbyist for the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Clarence Mitchell.
Art Seminar Group online lecture:
William Merritt Chase and the International Style with Aneta Georgievska-Shine, professor of art history, University of Maryland
With a career that straddled two continents and two centuries, William Merritt Chase (1849–1916) was in many respects “a citizen of the world.” Renowned in international art circles, he was a brilliant observer of contemporary life, an innovative painter, and an influential teacher. His multifaceted practice ranged from striking portraits and still lifes to glorious urban park scenes, landscapes, and interiors.

From their produce stand along East Lombard Street (aka “Corned Beef Row”) in the 1930s, owners Harry and Lena Tulkoff began noticing that their prepared horseradish sauce was flying off the shelves. Made with beet juice and vinegar, it tasted good on beef, fish, fowl, virtually every kind of meat one could eat. Horseradish sales soon outpaced sales of fresh produce, and the Tulkhoff’s switched gears to focus exclusively on producing and selling it to individual customers and food markets. It took their son, Sol, to diversify (slightly) their lineup.
