11-25-11: The War in Baltimore, the War Overseas

November 25, 2011 at 7:30 am Leave a comment

Today we’re celebrating the National Day of Listening. It was started by StoryCorps founder Dave Isay, our guest at the top of today’s program. The idea is to devote a day to listening to and learning from the people around us. This year’s theme is teachers, and at the Story Corps website, you can leave a thank you note for one of your favorite teachers.

Now, we’re going to let a teacher reflect on one of his students. Michael Corbin has taught in Baltimore City public high schools, as well as in a state prison. In his writing for the Urbanite, City Paper, and other publications, he chronicles the Baltimore that young men in poor neighborhoods see—an unpredictable city where these young men are trying just to survive in spite of constant danger and inequality.

Back in January, Michael brought us this essay about a former student.

Here’s the Story Corps question generator, in case you’d like to record an interview with family or friends.
