The 2016 Maryland primary election is history.  Today, State Senator Catherine Pugh is a big step closer to her dream of becoming Charm City’s next Mayor, and Chris Van Hollen and Kathy Szeliga will go head to head to replace Barbara Mikulski in the Senate. A host of other city and state-wide races were decided after months of an unusually crowded primary campaign season.  Award-winning Investigative Reporter Jayne Miller from WBAL TV on what this historic election means.

Then, taking stock, one year after the violence that followed the funeral of Freddie Gray.  Entrepreneurs B. Cole and Aisha Pew moved to Baltimore from Oakland, CA, established a business and invested in real estate; they’re working through a novel organization they've created called Brioxy to connect African American businesses across the country.  Why the Dovecote Café, just blocks from Penn and North, could be part of a bright future for post-Uprising Baltimore. 

And the poet, activist and scholar, Kaye Wise Whitehead, joins the conversation about Baltimore's future with B.Cole and Aisha Pew.  She also reads a poem from her new collection, RaceBrave, inspired by the Uprising.
