With the first anniversary of Mike Brown’s death approaching on Aug. 9, here at aljazeeraamerica we wanted to know what lasting changes, if any, the months of protests and inches of column space brought about.

In collaboration with echosight we brought together Michael Thomas of Ferguson and Glenford Nunez of Baltimore to tell these parallel stories: http://alj.am/35es



SAT AUG 15 - 11:00 AM

1651 N Fulton Avenue


On Saturday August 15, 2015 FGP will host a interactive community block party in the Sandtown/Winchester area at the site of the#PowerOfThePeople mural on the corner of N Fulton Ave. & Presbury St. The entire day will be dedicated to the life and legacy of our brother “Pepper” and the youth of our community.

Beats Rhymes & Relief artists will be adding some new imagery to the mural while we celebrate life with some good music, great food and a whole lot of family fun.

Between 12pm and 2pm local barbers will be providing FREE haircuts for the kids so they are #Fresh for the upcoming school year and our community partners will be distributing Book Bags & School Supplies to the youth.

Okay - baltimore RD meetup! I'm thinking around 3 PM the day of the show at the corner bakery on E Pratt in the inner harbor, bring stuff to make signs or just hang out and then we can all make our way to M&T together when we're done. If there's interest we can also meet up after the show to go to an all-night diner, I know there's one in Towson about twenty minutes from the stadium. Anyone interested in this please message me and we'll work from there!!

Everyone going, consider joining the meetup. It’s always super fun!

The tiniest things can be so exciting sometimes. They put us in wonderful company. The musicians they put on tape and the various musicians they discuss are all so good.  

Thank you very much!

Baltimore eight-year-old becomes the world's youngest double hand transplant recipient

Zion Harvey lost both of his hands and feet at the age of two after they became infected with gangrene. Zion received the new hands earlier this month at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. A 40-person medical team used steel plates and screws to attach the old and new bones. Surgeons then delicately reconnected arteries, veins, muscles, tendons and nerves.
