Measuring Commitment to Black Male Achievement; and 2016 Mayoral Candidate Elizabeth Embry

download__1_.jpeg

2015 has been a tough year for Baltimore City. The world saw the city in flames in April, following the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, and by mid-November the surge in violent crime claimed its 300th homicide victim. But in a new report measuring 50 U.S. cities’ commitment to Black Male Achievement, Baltimore ranked fifth. A representative from the Campaign for Black Male Achievement will join us to analyze the data. Then: an interview with 2016 Mayoral candidate Elizabeth Embry. We’ll ask her what her experience as a public servant - not a politician - can bring to the city.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
