Antero Pietila presents “The Ghosts of Johns Hopkins”
7PM – 9PM
Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse
1225 Cathedral St, Baltimore
The author of the essential history of real estate segregation in Baltimore, Not in My Neighborhood, is back with a brand new book! Johns Hopkins destroyed his private papers so thoroughly that no credible biography exists of the Baltimore Quaker titan. One of America’s richest men and the largest single shareholder of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Hopkins was also one of the city’s defining developers. In The Ghosts of Johns Hopkins, Antero Pietila weaves together a biography of the man with a portrait of how the institutions he founded have shaped the racial legacy of an industrial city from its heyday to its decline and revitalization. From the destruction of neighborhoods to make way for the mercantile buildings that dominated Baltimore’s downtown through much of the 19th century to the role that the president of Johns Hopkins University played in government sponsored “Negro Removal” that unleashed the migration patterns that created Baltimore’s existing racial patchwork, Pietila tells the story of how one man’s wealth shaped and reshaped the life of a city long after his lifetime.

Each box from The Archives contains an experiment designed to conjure visions of the past in order to ask a specific question. “She Who Sees and Hears the Cries of the World” Runs November 29-December 2. This experiment was originally conducted in 1836, but was so disastrous the results were suppressed for almost 200 years…until an anonymous informant gave us new information in an effort to answer the question: “How can one escape a curse?” (Actualized by Elizabeth Ung.)
