    Baltimore history lovers: Stop by the Maryland Women's Heritage Center, now located in the former Woman's Industrial Exchange at 333 N. Charles St. during Doors Open Baltimore on October 1, 2022. Ask about Memories of the Baltimore Woman's Industrial Exchange. The project, supported with a grant from the Baltimore National Heritage Area is gathering artifacts and oral history memories of the days when the WIE was a favorite restaurant and crafts venue. Tomato aspic anyone?

    Plan a day in Baltimore and visit our city neighbors. Here is the complete list of venues open that day: https://www.doorsopenbaltimore.org/sites/

    Support emerging young historians such as Micah Carroll, who won Maryland History Day’s Women’s History Award for her research about Fannie Lou Hamer. Join us for a conversation between MWHC board member and Havre de Grace resident Amy Rosenkrans and Micah about her findings.

    Fannie Lou Hamer was an American voting and women's rights activist, community organizer, and a leader in the civil rights movement. 

    The Maryland Women’s Heritage Center funds this prize. Proceeds for this presentation will fund the Women’s History Award in 2023. Maryland History Day is sponsored by Maryland Humanities.
