8-1-11: From the Ground Up

August 1, 2011 at 8:04 am Leave a comment

A month ago at the corner of Belle and Gwynn Oak in Northwest Baltimore, construction workers put a roof on a three-story building under construction. Soon that building will be a mosque—the first one in Baltimore City to be built from the ground up.

It’ll be the spiritual home of the Gwynn Oak Islamic Community. On Saturday, that community had a pre-Ramadan picnic across the street from the construction site.

Sheilah learns more from Presley Cason, head of the Gwynn Oak Islamic Community’s non-profit organization, and Greg Carpenter, a member of the community and a case manager at the Jericho Re-entry Program.
