EPISODE 235: Jealous discusses a future in America after pandemic and protests

    Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

    Given the current state of America in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and protests on our streets and throughout the world, we will be focusing on race and the future of  moving forward in many of our upcoming June episodes.

    We had plans for former NAACP President and Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous to join us back in the winter before COVID-19 but we finally connected earlier this month to discuss a wide range of issues of race, policing in America and how people of color are being heard at the polls and in the streets of our country.

    Clearly, we voted this month. And we hope you voted, too!

    We will have a lot of reaction to the elections in the coming days and weeks.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

    We’ll try to keep you cool.
