LEARNING TO BREATHE IN BALTIMORE
"What is happening to Baltimore today? After the riots? After Freddie Gray? The city is no longer in the national spotlight, but even as eyes turn elsewhere the struggles of her residents remain. Yet bright spots against the bleak background do exist. This is the story of four of Charm City’s children who, amid and despite everyday violences, have learned to breathe. And their story reminds us that, that breath, however scared, is sacred, because it is shared."
