Arts and Advocacy in West Baltimore

We meet residents of West Baltimore who nurture community and healing through the arts. Jazz composer Todd Marcus draws inspiration from two decades of living and working alongside his neighbors with the non-profit ‘Intersection of Change.’

Then Marion Blackwell, manager of the nonprofit ‘Historic Pennsylvania Avenue Main Street,’ talks about restoration of the celebrated Arch Social Club facade and spoken-word poet Brion Gill leads the charge to designate the area as a black arts-and-entertainment district.
