Understanding the Civil Rights Movement in Harford County, Maryland

A three-year professional and curriculum development project on Harford County’s civil rights history.

Harford Community College proposes a three-year project to engage students in humanities through primary research, oral history interviews, analysis of existing oral histories, and the development of a digital exhibition and mobile application on civil rights activities in Harford County. The project will deepen students' understanding of literary works and local and national history and will broaden community awareness of the role that Harford County played in the civil rights movement. The project will take place in three phases. Phase one will focus on faculty and staff training and development. During phase two, faculty will integrate readings, assignments, and activities into seven existing humanities courses and student activities, serving at least 450 students. Phase three will have faculty and students develop a digital exhibition and mobile application that will share student work and further community understanding of the civil rights movement in Harford County.
