The theater department is collaborating with the Office for Equity and Inclusion and Student Affairs and Campus Life to present Kirsten Greenidgeâ€™s â€œBaltimore.â€�
In the play, as a racist incident divides her first-year students, reluctant resident advisor Shelby finds herself in the middle of a conversation she does not want to have. As pressure to address the issue mounts from residents, the new dean and even her best friend, Shelby must decide if she will enter the fray or watch her community come apart at the seams. Sharp, funny and searing, Baltimore is about racism on college campuses and how we learn to talk to each other.
