All Baltimore Voices: Stories About & Beyond the Unrest
Join for storytelling, spoken word, and a panel discussion at this event that recognizes the one-year anniversary of the Baltimore Unrest. The public is invited to share personal stories about, before, or beyond the Baltimore Unrest in story circles during a storytelling workshop led by Dr. Karsonya ("Kaye") Whitehead of Loyola University.
It is followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Brian Morrison, founder of the William J. Watkins, Sr. Educational Institute; Makayla Gilliam Price, senior at Baltimore City College public high school and activist; and Katrina Bell McDonald, Associate Professor of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University.
