About this session: Baltimore, one of the South’s largest cities, was a crucible of segregationist laws and practices. In this session, Morgan State University Associate Professor David Taft Terry explores the historical importance of African American resistance to Jim Crow culture in the South’s largest cities after World War II. This resistance, he argues, drew from the older protest traditions, and would ultimately inspire a national civil rights movement of the 1960s.
