"Race, Class, Power, and Organizing in East Baltimore"

Feb 25, 2014

Our first two guests, when Maryland Morning launched almost eight years ago, were the then-CEO of the East Baltimore Development, Incorporated – and the community activist who was leading the charge to make sure that the people who had lived in Middle East had a chance to work and live in the re-developed community. That community activist is Dr. Marisela Gomez, who's speaking at the Pratt Central Library tonight.

At the time, she was leading SMEAC – the “Save Middle East Action Committee.” She is still an activist, and more – a public-health professional, medical doctor and author.  She’s speaking tonight at the Pratt Central Library about her book Race, Class, Power, and Organizing in East Baltimore: Rebuilding Abandoned Communities in America. But, first, she talks with Sheilah Kast in the studio.
