Spring has sprung: daffodils are blooming; robins are out searching for those tasty early worms; and, street art is sprouting in many public spaces across town.

Over the next several weeks, the 21st Century Cities Initiative at Johns Hopkins University will present a series of discussions entitled Redlining: Geographies of Exclusion and Conversations of Inclusion. The series focuses on the inequality of racial discrimination, how our country could bring about positive change, and what our local community can do to improve and enhance the quality of life for all in Baltimore.

The first discussion took place last Wednesday at the Motor House on North Avenue. Inside the meeting room Baltimore artists Ernest Shaw, Gaia, and Nether exhibited artwork they created to depict, portray and represent the themes of the discussion series.
