"Ban The Box"; Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival; Fallen Heroes; Irish History In Baltimore
It’s been a year since employers in Baltimore were barred from asking job-seekers, on their application form, about their criminal history. We ask a recently hired ex-offender and the manager of a career center what difference Ban the Box is making.
Then, the Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival kicks off late tomorrow morning at the Creative Alliance in East Baltimore. We get a taste of the kind of Maryland culture you can expect with rock and soul musician Brooks Long.
Plus, you’ve heard of the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore. Michael Mellett, the president of the Irish Railroad Workers Museum, says there is much more to know about how the railroads in Baltimore came to be – and it’s all about the Irish.
