A Preview of TEDxBaltimore

download_1.jpeg

In mid-January, leaders from all different fields and walks of life will gather at Morgan State University for TEDxBaltimore, an event featuring short lectures on technology, education, art, and more. The goal: to highlight ideas to change the world.

In this hour, we’ll get a preview from three of the event’s speakers. James Page, chief diversity officer of Johns Hopkins, tells us why doctors shouldn’t write off different cultures' approaches to healthcare. Victor Rodgers, also known as Slangston Hughes, describes how the art of spoken word can be a force for change in Baltimore. And Alexandra Petri, columnist and blogger for the Washington Post, pokes fun at criticism leveled at how women speak.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
