Happy Monday! Here are some updates and resources to be aware of this week.
Baltimore City Council Meeting (Tonight at 5pm)
Tonight, we will introduce an ordinance designating The Reed Calloway House, (1316 N. Carey St) as a Baltimore City historic landmark. The designation of the home at 1316 N. Carey Street is one way to honor not just Cab and Blanche Calloway’s legacy, but also honor and celebrate the talents and legacy of the family that helped raise the Calloway children, giving them their musical education, and serving the greater Baltimore community.
You can tune into the City Council meeting this evening at 5pm.
