The Reading & Tech Warriors took a trip to Baltimore to visit a few important locations, both educational and historical.
The Warriors began their trip at Morgan State University and were shown around the campus by a tour guide. Starting at the theatre, they crossed a bridge that historically marked the line of segregation from the campus and the rest of the city. They eventually ended up in the University’s business center and were shown around the building.
Afterwards, there was a Q&A session in the campus quad with some of the University’s students, and from the day spent exploring the campus “we got the opportunity to learn of the involvement Morgan State University played in the civil rights movement,” reported NLA’s STEM Program Coordinator Keith Thomas.
From the University, the Warriors went to the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, a wax museum in Baltimore featuring prominent African-American figures throughout history. Keith reflected that “the students were able to travel through time,” as they learned the stories of the individual figures throughout the museum.
