BCHS Board Member Nick Fessenden and Advisory Committee Member Brigitte Fessenden are part of the group that founded the Baltimore Immigration Museum. 

After years of searching for a location for their exhibits, the Baltimore Immigration Memorial, Inc. organization partnered with the Locust Point Community Church UCC, to establish a museum in the church-owned Immigration House. This building was built in 1904 for newly arrived European immigrants who needed temporary housing before moving on to their final destinations or finding work and permanent housing in Baltimore.

The museum is free, but donations are welcome to help with upkeep and maintenance, as well as with future exhibits and educational programs.

We Bring Thee Our Laurels Whatever They Be: Student-Led Protest at Morgan State

The national student movement of the 1960s grew out of Baltimore's student movements of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The Baltimore City Chapter of the NACCP, the City-Wide Youth Forum, Morgan State College NAACP, and the Civic Interest Group led and shaped the “long Civil Rights Movement.”
