OSI Baltimore Community Fellows Part 2

Dec 2, 2014

This episode is the second part of a two-part program profiling the Open Society Institute’s new class of Baltimore Community Fellows. To hear from the rest of the Open Society Institute Baltimore fellows, listen to Part One here.

In this hour, we profile five of the Open Society Institute’s new class of eleven Baltimore Community Fellows. These innovators will work full-time for the next 18 months on projects that revitalize neglected neighborhoods and reach out to underserved groups. The projects are as diverse as the fellows themselves. The fellows we hear from today include an artist using theater to connect neighbors, an advocate who knows firsthand the challenges faced by men returning home from prison, and a former Peace Corps volunteer promoting healthy eating and community gardens.

Charlotte Keniston's project, Pigtown Food for Thought, is helping residents establish community gardens.
