Happy New Year! If you follow me on IG you know I’ve been quiet because I’m working on a new project. Something very personal and unfortunately very common in the black community. Follow @absentsireshow and bookmark absentsirepodcast.tk to stay updated (email newsletter may be coming). Now that I’ve a second to breathe, here’s the audio from my first ever panel where I’m the moderator!
I sat down with Montier and Chavon of SVNCRWNS along with Nicolas and Chris of Noisy Tenants to discuss how both camps are using their creative juices to control the context of Baltimore’s neighborhoods and its people. A quick note, in the beginning I reference the movies Dope and Straight Outta Compton but never tied the two together. What I wanted to say (but didn’t because I was nervous) was how two movies can put one neighborhood/area in different contexts, and you get different stories. But you knew that already because Local Color listeners are smart. Enjoy! (P.S. follow Creative Mornings on IG, @baltimore_cm) Pics of the event below, courtesy of Laura Ferrara.
