For over a year the Maryland Humanities Council, as part of its Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: Remembrance and Reconciliation special initiative, has been asking the question, “Where are we 40 years later?”—referring to the years since Dr. King’s assassination. This question has as many answers as it does people offering an opinion.
Last week, The Catonsville Times reported on a “Community Conversation” about race relations centering on the Baltimore riots in 1968 that was held at the Y of Central Maryland’s Catonsville Family Center. Participants in that discussion reported vivid memories of the confusion and terror of those days, and described how they think those events still influence race relations today.
If you experienced the riots that occurred after Dr. King’s death, either in Maryland or elsewhere, we would like to hear your story. Please share it with us here.
