If you've always wanted to attend the Critical Social Justice walking tour and couldn't make it - here's your chance to check out a similarexperience.
Join Summer Session faculty members Eli Pousson (Director of Preservation & Outreach, Baltimore Heritage) and Kate Drabinski (Gender + Women's Studies) for a walking tour of West Baltimore and get to know UMBC’s newest neighborhood by the University of Maryland's BioPark. Topics will include the industrial history of West Baltimore, processes of urban renewal and displacement, and recent efforts to change the neighborhood through tourism, education, and other forms of investment. What makes West Baltimore “West Baltimore,” and whose voices shaped and continue to shape its past, present, and future? The tour will leave from the Lion Building (875 Hollins Street) at 5:30pm and return by 7:00pm.
Space is limited. UMBC students, faculty and staff who wish to participate should use this link to RSVP.
