Maryland Humanities Presents 24th Year of Living History Series


Baltimore, MD – Maryland Humanities brings Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, and Eleanor Roosevelt back to life through its program, Chautauqua: Seeking Justice. Actor-scholars portraying these three giants of social justice will travel to eight counties throughout the state, from July 5 until July 15. The Charles County performances are hosted at the College of Southern Maryland, La Plata, located at 8730 Mitchell Road.

Chautauqua celebrates its 24th season this summer. Living history performances by actor-scholars are followed by question and answer sessions which spark spirited conversation and provide educational family fun. The Thurgood Marshall performance features an excerpt from the George Stevens, Jr. play, Thurgood, and will be followed by a dialogue with Dr. Lenneal Henderson. Henderson, an internationally recognized scholar, brought Marshall to life in the 2010 Maryland Humanities Chautauqua tour. Every Chautauqua performance is free and open to the public and opens with live local musical and theatrical acts. The schedule for the Charles County performances is as follows: 

July 10 at 6:45 PM: Frederick Douglass
July 11 at 6:45 PM: Eleanor Roosevelt
July 12 at 6:45 PM: Thurgood Marshall
