Baltimore Ceasefire: What Success Means & Where We Go From Here

August 10, 2017 – Baltimore Ceasefire

Today we launch our first podcast since our daily show closed. At the very least we will be bringing you a new podcast every week.

Baltimore Ceasefire captured the hearts and minds of our community when it launched the campaign for a weekend without killings in our neighborhoods. Last weekend was that weekend when I was unfortunately away in Memphis.  As we all know Baltimore Ceasefire went viral over the last month and no less so last weekend when dozens and dozens of groups of people craeted Ceasefire events around this City. Yes, two were murdered in a 72 hour period but a movement, a consciousness, a spirit has been born. This first podcast reflects that spirit as we talk with Erricka Bridgeford who inspired and created Baltimore Ceasefire and community theater activist and Steiner Show commentator Koli Tengella who was not part of the planning but was one of thousands to spontaneously and creatively participate respond to the call of  Baltimore Ceasefire.
