Every year, the Baltimore Speaks Out Program -- a project of the non-profit Wide Angle Youth Media -- teaches about 90 young people between the ages of 10 and 15 how to use digital media to tell their own stories and to engage with their communities. This year, the students have created a series of radio and video stories about food, culture and tradition in Baltimore, some of which we’ve been pleased to share with you on Maryland Morning. Here’s their latest radio report on the amazing ethnic diversity to be found in Belvedere Square, a popular Baltimore food market.
The BSO youth producers include Taylor Adams, Serena Baker, Kelis Brown, Justin Marine, Reagan McNeal, Darren Merrick, Diamond Merrick, Dorrien Merrick, Zechariah Moore, Daniya Rhone, Darrius Tucker, Taylor Watts, Mitchell Whitehurst, Annon Whye III. The group's adult supervisors are Kellie Welborn, Daria Baylis and Eve Austin. Moira Fratantuono is Wide Angle Youth Media's program manager.
