One of my all-time favorite songs from Nina Simone, written by Randy Newman: Baltimore.
This video features great photographs of the city from 1969 by Ty Waller, who says:
"Baltimore through my lens around 1969. The photos of the police on E. Chase Street were taken the day after MLK's assassination. They were sent to protect us from us. Of course this was long before the riverfront revitilization. That is why you see a few pictures of drunks and beggars. don't think that exists..."
Respect to everyone in Baltimore today working toward peace!
