After the city cleared an encampment of homeless people living near MLK Boulevard last month, advocates for the homeless are calling for the city to leave encampments in place until Baltimore can commit to permanent housing for those displaced. We’ll speak to an attorney who fights for due process for Baltimore’s homeless.

Then, to mark the 25th anniversary of the ‘Americans with Disabilities Act,’ we talk to the head of a nonprofit who has designed an online video library for aging and disabled people to pool the skills they’ve learned in compensating for their own individual shortcoming.

Plus, one the 20th century’s most widely-read writers, E. L. Doctorow, died this week. We’ll listen again to his conversation with Tom Hall in 2006, when Doctorow was honored by the Pratt Library.
