Saleem & the Music Lovers formed in 2005 with a simple goal to blend the live band tradition with elements of modern hip-hop. In the process of discovering their voice, they began to infuse elements of jazz, soul, and rhythm blues into their music. Saleem provides the perfect counterpoint to the melodies crafted by Topix, Sinseer, and Tangie Bee, The Music Lovers. Together, their powerful performances have won them fans from east to west and abroad, making them one of the most highly regarded groups on the underground scene.

Record your oral history interview for the Stories from Baltimore Teens project to speak, learn, and save how different generations respond to living during the pandemic.
This Special Collections project wants you to document those responses by collecting first-hand accounts through oral history interviews between teens and their parents or guardians.
Created in the style of StoryCorps, the Stories from Baltimore Teens project is meant to encourage recordings that are part conversation, part listening, and all sharing of another's experience.

We’re excited to announce the launch of the “Virtually Creative” after-school program.
The “Virtually Creative” after school program is an extension of our onsite programming that takes place at John Ruhrah Elementary/ Middle and Tench Tilghman Elementary/ Middle.
