Black and white are the two main shades of discussion about race in Baltimore. But, in a lot of parts of the city, the situation is far more complex. Baltimore’s Fell’s Point neighborhood saw an influx of Native Americans after World War II. More recently, the neighborhood has become home to a sizable Hispanic community. These waves of immigration, layered on top of an already ethnically mixed neighborhood, are sometimes cause for confusion

Ashley Minner is a member of the Lumbee tribe—the group of Native Americans that settled in Baltimore. For our series on race in Baltimore, Across the Divide, she told her story to Maryland Morning producer Katherine Gorman.
