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 ErrickaBridgefordwho inspired and created Baltimore Ceasefire and community theater activist and Steiner Show commentator KoliTengella who was not part of the planning but was one of thousands to spontaneously and creatively participate respond to the call of Baltimore Ceasefire.
We discuss the latest spike in violent crime in Baltimore City. What is at the root of the violence, and what can be done to combat it?
Our guests include: Krishana Davis, multi-platform journalist who writes for the Baltimore Afro newspaper; Kimberly Armstrong, community advocate, author, speaker, and winner of the Spirit of Woman Award; Cameron Miles, Director of Mentoring Males Teens in the Hood; and Michael Johnson, community leader and activist.
