DACA’s Effect on Baltimore and its Citizens

September 19, 2017 – DACA’s Effect on Community

While the plight of the young people registered through DACA  has left the headlines, we share with you a panel discussion that looks at the depth of the issue. We explore the legal tangles of DACA and hear from a DACA registrant about loving this country while living in non citizenship limbo under constant threat of being deported from the only country she knows.

 

We hear from Yvette Pappoe, an alum of Maryland Carey Law and a DACA holder; Maureen Sweeney, who has directed the Immigration Clinic at the Maryland Carey School of Law since 2004 and is a founding board member of the Maryland Immigrant Rights Coalition; and  Reena Shah, Executive Director of the Maryland Access to Justice Commission and former Director of the Human Rights Project at Maryland Legal Aid Bureau.


Baltimore Creatives: A Family of Artists

Guy Curtis & Victoria KennedyAugust 29, 2017 – A Baltimore Artist Family

Our latest podcast features an amazing Baltimore family of artists, writers and musicians. Ironically, I knew them all individually but only learned recently that they are related to each other! Guy Curtis is a professional drummer who formerly played with George Clinton. Curtis’ daughter, Victoria Kennedy, is a Baltimore-based writer. Her son, Lawrence Burney, who has been a guest on my show before, writes for VICE and publishes his own Zine “True Laurels”.

When I learned that all this talent resided in one family, I knew it was time to bring that family to our podcast and share their story with you.

We hosted a special interview I conducted around the popular and powerful television series The Wire.We then listened to a conversation I had with Ed Burns, a writer and co-producer of The Wire.  Burns is a former Baltimore City Cop and Baltimore City public school teacher. Those experiences deeply informed the script of The Wire, as his real-life stories often found their way onto the screen.
