April 28, 2019 – 1:00pm, St. James Episcopal Church
The Billie Holiday Project is pleased to kick-off the first in a series of community-engaged lectures at historic African American churches in West Baltimore. Named in honor of civil rights activist Helena Hicks, the lecture series highlights African American faculty at Johns Hopkins whose scholarship explores questions of race, culture, history, inequality, and social change in the U.S. Lawrence Jackson will deliver the first presentation, “Frederick Bailey of Baltimore,” to an ecumenical audience of three church congregations: St. James, Bethel A.M.E., and Sharp Street United Methodist.
