  • Historical Note

    Formed in 1979, the Baltimore Voices Company was the Theatre Project's contribution to a larger, multi-facetted local history initiative known as the Baltimore Neighborhood Heritage Project. In order to create a theatrical production that was performed throughout the city in 1980, company members utilized existing BNHP oral histories and conducted their own taperecorded interviews. The BVC's interviews were organized around specific themes, including labor, education, and community organizing.

  • Custodial History

    This collection was originally part of the Baltimore Regional Institutional Studies Center (BRISC) at the University of Baltimore.
