The Signal: 1.17.14
MLK Street Projects, Ben Keenes Brewery Tour stop in Baltimore, a Story from the Stoop and more.
As the nation gets ready to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, radio and TV stations will once again roll out their annual loop of sound-bytes from the civil rights leader’s famous 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech. But a group of creative young filmmakers invite us to look at Dr. King’s legacy through a different lens - the streets that bear his name. The Signal’s Aaron Henkin talks with the minds behind The MLK Streets Project.
Where and Back, Ben Keene lists five good reasons to visit a brewery in 2014. He should know. In researching his new book, The Great Northeast Brewery Tour, Keene toured 62 breweries from New England to the Mid-Atlantic. His visit to Baltimore included a stop at The Brewer’s Art, one of the earliest craft breweries in Baltimore. Brewer’s Art co-founder Volker Stewart and Ben Keene join The Signal’s Lisa Morgan to talk about the latest trends in modern American brewing.
