Voices of a Black Butterfly Film Premiere

Voices of a Black Butterfly Film Premiere

Featured Guest: Dr. Lawrence T. Brown, Author, “The Black Butterfly: The Harmful Politics of Race and Space in America

The film addresses what a heritage area is and also singles out the unique characteristics of Baltimore’s urban heritage area. Baltimore’s heritage isn’t just represented by its historic buildings or museums. This film offers a voice to the real experiences of the “black butterfly,” the city’s often disinvested Black neighborhoods. These voices remind us that each culture is worth preserving in all its facets, and that we are both defined and connected as people by the wings of Baltimore’s “black butterfly.”
