In Her Hand: Sadie Jacobs Crockin
Lobby Exhibit on display through November 19, 2020.
Baltimore’s Sadie Crockin (1880 – 1965) was a leader, a community organizer, an activist, a mother, a wife, and perhaps above all an inspiration – a true Upstander. A natural orator, Crockin embraced her abilities as a public speaker to fight for the causes in which she passionately believed.
From her part in the fight for women’s votes, to aiding in the growth of Hadassah, encouraging voter education and supporting Maryland’s immigrant community, Crockin left behind a legacy of women inspired to take up their cause. Drawing upon her writings and speeches from the Jewish Museum of Maryland’s collection, this exhibit will inspire you to take up your own cause and continue her legacy in this, the centennial year of the 19th Amendment.
