This week, the Baltimore Times launched a series called, “Baltimore Uprising: Have Things Changed or Remained the Same?” The series will feature community leaders reflecting on the uprising and its impact over the past five years. It is one of 13 community-based projects that OSI is supporting to mark the anniversary.
Later this month, the Baltimore Times will present the first element of the series, a photo exhibit featuring the work of Daisy Brown, a community leader and staff photographer at The Peale Center in Baltimore, and community conversation.
Brown, who grew up in West Baltimore, says the uprising brought significant change to the city. “Young people don’t have to deal with injustice by themselves,” she says. “We have become mayor, we have become councilmembers, we’re putting together nonprofits, and we’re board members… I have so much pride to see how this has all evolved in five years.”
