Facebook page for "Cherry Hill - Raising Successful Black Children in Jim Crow Baltimore"

Linda Morris’s book is Cherry Hill: Raising Successful Black Children in Jim Crow Baltimore. She describes the isolated community as a haven for African American families, and tells how her family withstood the indignity of segregation when they traveled out of their neighborhood.

Fellow contributor Sidney Ellis reminisces about the joys of mother-daughter banquets and Linda’s brother attorney John Morris describes parents instilling a self-confidence that stays with him still.

Hear more about the history of Cherry Hill at an event at the Reginald  F. Lewis Museum on September 7th. More information here. And check out the book's Facebook page to see photos.

This place, people counted it out to drown.  But Cherry Hill is literally that.  We are a hill.  I don’t care how much water you surround us by.  We are a hill that will always stand and will always be bold.
