January 10, 2013 – Hour 1

Tonight we talk with a group of this year’s Open Society Institute Fellows about their projects and their visions for the future of Baltimore. You will hear from:

  • Bashi Rose, who established a program to give African American male high school students and incarcerated adults an opportunity to use theatre and film as tools to navigate conflict without resorting to violence;
  • Pascha Lee, who created a project to build long-term mentoring relationships to support the academic and behavioral needs of middle school girls;
  • Harold Bailey, who is working to provide peer-to-peer counseling, social counseling workshops and employment preparation services for formerly incarcerated males; and
  • Cheryl Carmona, who is educating residents in the community about proper waste disposal and recycling practices, to protect urban waterways and reduce health hazards.
