Faculty and students at Harford Community College have worked on several civil rights projects since 2019. These included more than 500 students working on civil rights related projects in drama, English and history courses. Several of these courses looked at the civil rights struggle of the 50s and 60s and the impacts of segregation in Harford County over the decades. As a part of these efforts, a series of oral histories have been recorded and developed into a website/app. Dr. Karmel, a leader in this effort, is quoted as saying, “To the extent that the project can help enact positive change where necessary in Harford, we’d like to pursue that, mainly through providing forums for people to communicate.”
The upcoming program will include featured segments of the app and an opportunity to speak with Dr. Karmel about the Civil Rights movement in Harford County and its impacts which continue to this day.
