In our show today Dr. John Bullock sits in as host of the Marc Steiner Show. He is Professor of Political Science at Towson University.

We preview “Save Our Streets: A Spoken Art Slam” with Director Phillip Royston Burgess, who is a Lecturer in the Theatre Program at Morgan State University; and Domonique Butler, one of the primary student performers in Save Our Streets.

Theatre Morgan  presents “Saving Our Streets: A Spoken Art Slam,” a collaboration of spoken word artists, drummers, dancers and visual artists from the Morgan State University and Baltimore communities. The spoken art street slam was developed over a 24 hour period and inspired by the words of Baltimoreans from all walks of life. The piece was created as a means to tell the stories of Black Baltimore, where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re headed. Performances: Saturday, September 26th at 7:00pm the YNot Lot at North Avenue and Charles Street; Friday, October 2nd at 8:00pm at the Murphy Fine Arts Center’s Amphitheater; Saturday, October 10th at 5:00pm at Walbrook Junction; and Friday, October 16th at 5:00pm at Pennsylvania and North Avenues. Performances are open to the public. More information at 443-885-3625 or at
