#BaltimoreLifeGoesOn

May 8, 2015

A talk about the effects of the recent disturbances on Baltimore life, with Richard Gorelick, restaurant critic of The Baltimore Sun; Sarah Meehan, who covers hospitality/tourism, minority business, marketing and new media for The Baltimore Business Journal; and Heather Harris, professor in business communications at Stevenson University. And composer Frances Pollock, a Peabody Conservatory graduate student, talks about her new opera, based on the true story of George Stinney, a 14-year-old African-American boy and the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th Century.

George Stinney Jr., age 14, was wrongly convicted and executed in 1944 for the rape and murder of two white girls.
