Baltimore: Town of a Thousand Beats

Keepin' On... Keepin' On

“The Home Town”, the “City of Neighborhoods”, “America in Miniature”, Baltimore’s identity and its strength have always been fueled by the fierce loyalties and the diversity of its racial and ethnic communities. We believe that any vision for Baltimore’s future must be laser focused on harnessing this strength. This belief directs our strong advocacy for groups actively working to restore the historic cultural legacy of Baltimore’s neighborhoods, including the Laurel Cemetery Memorial Task Force and our partner the Sacred Spaces Initiative. Please join the discussion on the Carroll’s Hundred blog, our Advocacy Pages, and Baltimore Beats, an interactive blog to exchange information and news.
