8-22-11: A Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue
This segment originally aired on February 28, 2011.
Some of Black Baltimore’s richest political and cultural history transpired along Pennsylvania Avenue, between North Avenue and Franklin Street. In February, the Maryland Morning production team took some recording equipment over there for a tour from James Hamlin, president of the Pennsylvania Avenue Redevelopment Collaborative. He opened a bakery on the Avenue in August — folks are very excited about their rolls.
