March 9, 2011 – Hour 1

We start off the hour with a quick update from Lea Gilmore on the status of legislation that would legalize same sex marriage in Maryland.
This month, Urbanite Magazine profiled six people whose work has changed Baltimore.  They are from very different fields, but they have in common a vision for a better future and the drive and determination to put their ideas into practice.  Read the profiles in this month’s Urbanite, and join us today for a conversation with some of the change makers.  Joining us are:

Hathaway Ferebee, Executive Director of the Safe and Sound Campaign
Dave Troy, Founder of Roundhouse Technologies
Sarah Hemminger, Founder of the Incentive Mentoring Program
Shodekeh, Beatboxer and advocate for the arts
We wrap up the hour with an update on the uprising in Libya with Kimberly Katz, Associate Professor of Middle East History at Towson University.
