#ThisIsBaltimore

In response to the negative press coverage surrounding last year’s uprising, local nonprofit Wide Angle Youth Media was inspired to document and share positive images of Baltimore youth. The resulting compilation, made possible in part by Maryland Humanities, shares photographs and essays showcasing Baltimore youth from more than 15 neighborhoods. Today we hear from three Baltimore students who participated in creating and curating the book—Latrell, Raymond, and Imani— on how the experience affected them.
