Community members are working to revive the neighborhoods around Pennsylvania and North Avenues in West Baltimore. Now, there’s even more momentum behind it ... with the aim to secure funds to restore the facade of the historic Arch Social Club. We hear from Marion Blackwell, manager of the non-profit Historic Pennsylvania Avenue Main Street, and from the cultural curator of Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, spoken-word poet Brion Gill, who is leading a charge to designate the area as a Black arts and entertainment district.

Vote for the Arch Social Club to win a grant for restoring its arch HERE.
