For our July Lunch and Learn, we are welcoming Dr. Ida E. Jones, Morgan State University Archivist, who will discuss her latest book, Baltimore Civil Rights Leader Victorine Q. Adams: The Power of the Ballot. Dr. Jones will examine the life of Victorine Adams through her archival collection and address the importance of the archival record in contextualizing the life of the person. Please join us for this engaging talk.  

Dr. Ida E. Jones is the University Archivist at Morgan State University. She was hired to work in the Beulah M. Davis Room, which houses the university archives along special collections of rare books and manuscript collections. She is adjunct faculty at Lancaster Bible College and belongs to numerous professional organizations. Her publications include numerous book reviews, a variety of encyclopedia entries and an online exhibition. She edited two books and published four monographs. Her work on Victorine Adams is her first endeavor into Baltimore and Maryland history. Finally, Dr. Jones is a consummate scholar who believes deeply in the words of Mrs. Mary McLeod Bethune who stated “power must walk hand in hand with humility and the intellect must have a soul.” 

Presented in partnership with The Maryland State Archives and The Maryland Four Centuries Project.
