Maryland Humanities, a nonprofit that creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities, has chosen five organizations, including the Baltimore County Historical Society, to host its traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America.”
The exhibition aims to be a springboard for discussions about the freedoms and responsibilities of citizens and who has the right to vote. It will feature contemporary and historical photographs, archival video and historical objects, such as campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia and protest material.
Each site will host the exhibition for six weeks and develop a complementary exhibit highlighting the heritage and history of their community. The Baltimore County Historical Society showcase is being held in conjunction with the Community College of Baltimore County in Dundalk, located at 7200 Sollers Point Road.
