We host a production by students in the American Studies Program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), called Baltimore Traces: Communities in Transition – Part 1.

During the past semester, students have worked on the Bromo Speaks project to produce a radio series featuring the voices of the residents, artists, workers, and business owners in Baltimore’s Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District. The students gathered over 40 interviews with various people living, working, and visiting the district, highlighting themes such as: history, neighborhood change, racism and structural inequality, displacement and development, and the potential future of the area.
