10-19-12: The Lines Between Us: Foreclosed
You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.
This week, we'll look at research that shows how the foreclosure crisis broke down along race and class lines, and we’ll hear what Northeast Baltimore’s Belair-Edison community is doing to stem the tide.
First, Sheilah talks with Anjanette Booker, a hair salon owner there who's trying to cope with being on the brink of foreclosure. The New York Times interviewed Ms. Booker for a 2008 series about foreclosures in Belair-Edison. Sheilah finds out how she's doing now.
Then Sheilah and Maryland Morning senior producer Lawrence Lanahan walk through the various ways the foreclosure crisis played out along lines of race and class. And Lawrence goes to Belair-Edison to find out what neighborhood association Belair-Edison Neighborhoods, Inc. is doing to fend off the wave of foreclosures.
The Lines Between Us is made possible by grants from Associated Black Charities, Cohen Opportunity Fund, Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation, Baltimore Community Foundation, and Open Society Institute-Baltimore, as well as support from members of the WYPR Board of Directors.
