Real Talk Tho 6: How Can Baltimore Uplift Youth?

Join The Real News Network on June 4, 2019 at Ida B’s Table for Real Talk Tho, our 6th ‘newsroom in the community’ show, where youth and experts will discuss how our city can create the conditions for young people to thrive.

Topic: How Can Baltimore Uplift Youth?
Panelists: Coming Soon

Recent coverage of a gathering of teens at the Inner Harbor has spurred controversy. The city's police union labeled them criminals, even with little evidence crimes were committed.

But the incident raises deeper questions. If young people can't gather at the publicly funded site, where are they supposed to go? And why do we keep giving big tax breaks to developers, while closing youth recreational facilities, grossly underfunding schools, and providing few economic opportunities?

It's a fundamental question about the future of Baltimore City that we will try to answer on Tuesday, June 4 at Ida B's Table.

Doors open at 6:00PM. The program starts at 7:00PM
No reservations will be taken on this evening.
