A History of Poppleton (Doors Open Baltimore)

Friday, October 29 | 1:00 – 1:30 pm | Donation Based

Learn about the history of Poppleton with Professor Nicole King (Department of American Studies, UMBC). King has worked with local residents and preservationists to document the important Black history of Poppleton, which has been threatened by slum clearance, urban renewal, highway construction, and redevelopment. We will also learn about ongoing advocacy efforts to preserve Poppleton’s historic places and fight displacement, such as the proposed CHAP local historic district, Black Homeownership in Old Poppleton.
