Shelter: A Black Tale of Homeland, Baltimore

Dr. Lawrence B. Jackson’s 2022 memoir Shelter: A Black Tale of Homeland, Baltimore is at once a personal and expansive exploration of how history and race shape how we experience our city. In his Baltimore History Evening presentation, he will share reflections from researching and writing Shelter. Professor Jackson earned a PhD in English and American literature at Stanford University, and has held fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Humanities Center, and the William J. Fulbright program. He began his teaching career at Howard University in 1997 and he is now Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of English and History at Johns Hopkins University, where he directs the Billie Holiday Center for Liberation Arts. His latest book is Hold It Real Still: Clint Eastwood, Race and the Cinema of the American West.
