In this month's edition of Midday Culture Connections, Tom talks with series co-host Dr. Sheri Parks, MICA's Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, about the image of Baltimore in the national media, and how that squares with the image its residents have of their city.  In recent days, political leaders and many people on social media have been busy defending Baltimore from verbal assaults by President Trump. But even the city's staunchest defenders acknowledge that Baltimore faces problems long in the making, and very slow in the solving.  We take listener questions and comments.

This conversation was livestreamed on WYPR's Facebook page, and you can watch the video here.   The segment begins at 16:16 into the stream.
