Congratulations to Dr. Mott!

Congratulations to lecturer Dr. Shani Mott on being awarded the JHU Exploration for Practical Ethics grant.

Dr. Mott is joined by Dr. Jennifer Kingsley, senior lecturer and assistant director of the Program in Museums and Society and Dr. Nathan Connolly, Herbert Baxter Adams Associate Professor of History as principal investigators on their project Housing Our Story: Toward Archival Justice for Black Baltimore.
