Can Station North Save Baltimore City?

Baltimore's Station NorthFebruary 7, 2014 – Segment 4

We rebroadcast our segment on Baltimore’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District, which was the subject of a City Paper article last summer, “Can Station North Save The City?” We discuss revitalization, gentrification, and the state of arts in the city with: Michelle Antoinette AKA LOVE the poet, spoken word artist and musician; Ben Stone, Executive Director of Station North Arts and Entertainment, Inc.; Kate Khatib, member of the Red Emma’s Workers’ Cooperative, which moved into Station North this Fall; and Jude Lombardi, political activist and filmmaker with the Gentrification (k)NOT Project.

There will be a screening of Jude Lombardi’s film Gentrification (K)Not on Tuesday February 18, 7:30pm at Red Emma’s Bookstore and Coffeehouse in the Free School Classroom. Lombardi’s film examines many of the issues we discussed in our interview.
