In the spring of 2007, WTMD radio host Sam Sessa had an outlandish idea: take two Baltimore musicians who had never heard of each other, pair them up and force them to write four original songs in six weeks. The musicians he chose, Caleb Stine and Saleem Heggins, couldn't have come from more different backgrounds. Stine was an Americana singer/songwriter; Heggins an MC who liked vintage hip-hop. They didn't know each another before this little experiment called the Baltimore Music Project.
You are invited to join the Enoch Pratt Free Library as we celebrate African American Literature through our African American Read-In virtual event.
The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month. This initiative has reached more than 6 million participants around the world.
For the first time in conversation, Sunny Hostin and Joy Reid will talk about their careers and being groundbreaking Black women in media.

As It Should Be asked artists to imagine what tomorrow brings. If artists had the power to wake in the morning and have the perfect day, have all problems in the world be solved then what would the world look like? “The artist” is often written off as someone who doesn't understand how the world works and whose ideas have no basis of reality within the current system. What is misunderstood in these moments is that the artist can simultaneously hold the world as it is and the world as it should be. The cognitive dissonance between these two worlds is the space where the artist thrives.
