Tent City & Baltimore’s Renewed Civil Rights Campaign

Tent City PhotoSeptember 6, 2017 – Tent City

For our latest podcast we interviewed some of the organizers and participants from the Tent City who camped out in front of Baltimore’s City Hall.  Many were homeless, some were housing insecure and some were supporters demanding housing for the homeless. They closed the encampment after certain promises were made by the Mayor.  So we pick up the conversation exploring why they camped out and what they think the future of their movement will bring.

Enjoy the podcast.
