Today’s edition of What’s Up on Charm City Streets covers the month of November, 2015.

As reported last month, the Eubie Blake: Sandtown Mural Project, curated by Baltimore street artist Nether, aimed to create ten new murals that illustrate the rugged life and indomitable spirit of the Sandtown community. The project drew near to a close in November. Megan Lewis completed her striking mural on the side of the Hookup Barber Shop building at Baker and McKean Streets. Michelle Santos completed her evocative mural depicting a mother and child at the intersection of N Fulton and Presstman Streets. Well-known artist Adam Stab is near completion of his mural at the corner of Whitelock and Francis Streets.

On November 8th at the intersection of Pennsylvania and North Avenues, ground zero of the uprising following the death of Freddie Gray in April, the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, Jubilee Arts, [email protected], the Arch Social Club, and City Council members William Welch (District 9) and Nick Mosby (District 7) dedicated the dramatic mural Sankofa created by local artists Ernest Shaw, Nether, and Eric Hendricks. The mural features Billie Holiday, Ernest’s daughter Asyamelan, and author Ta-Nehisi Coates holding his baby son. Ernest Shaw explained the mural represents “the past, present, and the future toward which we should move”.
