The former office of Juanita Jackson Mitchell, the first Black woman to practice law in Maryland, will soon serve as a legal and social services hub in West Baltimore’s Marble Hill historic district, community leaders announced Monday. Located at 1239 Druid Hill Ave. in Upton, the vacant building where Mitchell’s office sat was purchased by the Beloved Community Services Corporation. Its executive director, Alvin Hathaway, said he’s “blessed” to give the neighborhood where he grew up a gift on his birthday.
