Md. Exhibit Is Lesson In School Integration

SHADY SIDE, Md. (AP) — A new exhibit about the history of schools in the Maryland town of Shady Side is opening in Anne Arundel County.

The new exhibit opens Sunday at the Captain Salem Avery Museum and tells the story of the days when there were separate schools for black and white children until the opening of a new, integrated school. The exhibit, which was months in the making, includes pictures of classes and a video of former teachers and students. The exhibit also includes an early school room and recess area.

Admission to the museum, which is open Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., is free.
