Each year, 150,000 Black and Brown children—disproportionally those with disabilities—are handcuffed, restrained, referred to law enforcement, and arrested in our nation’s schools. This 90-minute Juneteenth virtual event will feature community partners reflecting on how Baltimore is affected by these acts of inequality and racism experienced by our children, and what is being done to change that reality.
This Winter/Spring 2021 From the Heights virtual conversation season began against the backdrop of COVID-19, racial unrest, and actions striving for justice and healing — nothing has been “normal.” The season’s final conversation is hosted by Promise Heights in partnership with Everyman Theatre, and examines the many challenges of this moment, while offering actionable insights that you can use today.
Good food + good people + good cause = good times!

The Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) will present a free online program on Thursday, June 24 at 7pm that uses material from the BMI’s collections and archives to tell the story of how Baltimore became a shipbuilding power that produced one of Baltimore’s most historically significant artifacts, the S.S. John W. Brown.
This program is part of the BMI’s Bethlehem Steel Legacy Project, a multiyear initiative to document and preserve the stories of the local steelmaking giant and the surrounding community. At its height, its Sparrows Point mill was the largest steel producer in the world, making steel for bridges, buildings, and railroads. What many people do not know is that Bethlehem Steel also built ships. This online program is free to attend, though advanced registration is required. Click here to register.
