I wonder who decides where the statues
of famous Black Leaders will be. I wonder
who is behind building those statues. At
least I have one question answered, which
is where are these Black monuments?
Bill Holiday’s statue is on the corner
of Pennsylvania Avenue at Lanvale Street.
Frederick Douglass’s bust is in the foyer
of Douglass Senior High school.
The Frederick Douglass Statue is on the campus
of MOrgan State University,Cold Spring Lane and Hillen Road .
There is a marker dedicated to JOshua Johnson,
who was the first Black portrait painter who
received public acknowledgement in the United
States. It’s located at the MOrris A.
Mechanic Theater at the intersection of
Charles and Baltimore Streets.
Thurgood Marshall’s statue is at Pratt Street
and Hopkins Place.
A Black Soldier Statue is located at the
Baltimore Monument Plaza, Calvert and LExington
There are even museums dedicated to Black Leaders
and HEroes from Baltimore.
Eubie Blake National Museum & CULTURAL CENTER- located at 34 Market Place
Eubie Blake is a Baltimore Jazz museum immortalized at that museum.
Then there is the “THe Great Blacks in Wax
Museum” at 160 E. North Ave.
So if you are ever in the area and looking
for some locations to check out those are some
great suggestions. Plus, if you want to go
on an exciting adventure to see those places,
that ought to be fun.
