The Edythe M. Jolley Museum and Cultural Center pays homage to Mace’s Lane High School, which remained Dorchester County’s Black high school until it was integrated by the Dorchester County Board of Education in the fall of 1969–only under threat of losing federal funding. More than an account of a single high-achieving institution, the Museum, when completed, will offer the little-known story of Black education in America and its contribution in ending segregation in this country. The exhibit will also include an elaborate timeline that documents the important role that Cambridge, MD played in the 1960s Civil Rights Movement.
