Writers Live: Dr. Ida E. Jones, Baltimore Civil Rights Leader Victorine Q. Adams

In her latest work,  Baltimore Civil Rights Leader Victorine Q. Adams, Dr. Ida Jones reveals the story of civic leader, educator, politician and activist Victorine Q. Adams and her crusade for equity for all people in Baltimore.  Adams, a Baltimore native, lived through stringent segregation, racial violence and economic turbulence to become the first African American woman elected to the Baltimore City Council.  Dr. Jones examines her life using archival materials to tell the story of this Baltimore City activist and politician.
