Dr. Nix On Segregation In Baltimore; Everyman Theater's Fences; Maryland's Annual Bear Hunt

Baltimore Brew/Pietella


We’ll begin today with a conversation about the history of discrimination and planned segregation that has divided Baltimore neighborhoods for generations.  Elizabeth Nix from the University of Baltimore traces that history in the Baltimore 68 Project.  She’ll talk about how and why so many of the divisions that existed at the time of the 1968 riots were still in place as the Baltimore Uprising developed last spring. 

And we’ll touch base with Vincent Lancisi, the founder of the Everyman Theater, as well as Clinton Tuner Davis, who is directing Everyman’s current production of August Wilson’s iconic play, Fences. 

Plus, Maryland’s black bear hunt starts on Monday.   Nathan Sterner brings us a history of the hunt, and Gil Sandler brings us a Baltimore Story.
