Growing Up African In America

Creative Alliance

Saturday is World Refugee Day, and the Creative Alliance is using it as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the talented refugee and immigrant artists who currently live in Baltimore. The World Refugee Day Street Festival starts at noon on Saturday in East Baltimore. There will be music, dance, food, and crafts.

Joining Tom Hall in the studio is a woman who will be one of the featured performers at the festival, Bilphena Yahwon, a spoken word artist and refugee from West Africa. She will be performing at the World Refugee Day Street Festival on Saturday along with Sudanese musician, Mosno Al-Moseeki and Persian musician, Behfar Bahadoran. It’s from 12-3 on Conkling Street in East Baltimore. The event is produced by the Creative Alliance, Baltimore Resettlement Center, International Rescue Committee, and the Baltimore City Community College Refugee Youth Project.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
