May 17, 2016 – Segment 1
A recent project at UMBC has been collecting stories of Baltimore communities as they change and grow. The idea is to meet people where they are and listen to their stories. It’s called Baltimore Traces: Communities in Transition and it’s made possible by a Hrabowski Innovation Fund grant. This semester’s radio series is called DOWNTOWN VOICES. Students talk to city folks about their thought on the past, present, and future of Baltimore.
Today, “Word on the Street” — a little sidewalk talk from the west side of Downtown, what people love about downtown and what needs to change for it to serve citizens better. Narrated by Shira Singlenberg of UMBC’s Baltimore Traces.
