Conversations about Race: 1943

Baltimore Adult Activities Council Discussion Agenda

Roundtable Discussion

Conversations about Race

Around the same time the Preparatory removed the branch schools for African-American students, changes were beginning to happen in the United States regarding racial integration. Examples of this in the 1940s include the integration of interstate travel, Major League Baseball, and the Armed Forces. Important conversations were taking place, and in Baltimore a roundtable discussion was hosted by the Baltimore Adult Activities Council to discuss racial prejudice in children. Peabody administrators were invited to this meeting. Click on the document to the left to view the invitation and meeting agenda.
