Churches historically have played a leadership role in the black community. We talk about how faith groups in Baltimore are engaging in the digital and decentralized ‘black lives matter’ movement.

Then, Tom Hall talks to Rabbi Daniel Cotzin Burg from Beth Am Congregation and the Reverend Andrew Foster Connors from Brown Memorial Church about what they’re doing to make their congregations more inclusive.

Plus, Tom and theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck discuss the Jazz Age musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie," at Cockpit in Court Theater of the Community College of Baltimore County.

And, we talk to two grad students who just won a prize for their proposal that Baltimore make healthy produce more accessible by setting up a market that would charge cheap prices for food otherwise headed for the landfill.
