Sandtown-Winchester: Past and Present, Part II

sandtown_neighborhood.jpg

We revisit West Baltimore's Sandtown-Winchester -- "Freddie's neighborhood" -- with people who live there and who have been involved in the two-decades-long effort to raise the quality of life of its residents. Our guests: Former Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, now president of the University of Baltimore; Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore City branch of the NAAACP Carol Reckling, executive director of Child First Authority and a senior leader for BUILD (Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development); Rev. Louis Wilson of New Song Community Church; and Marvin Warfield, a lifelong Sandtown resident and member of New Song.
