When 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 controversy 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 not only a timely drama about racism on college campuses, but a reminder that each of us carries unique experiences that influence how we move through the world. And when we acknowledge this, we are better able to combat our biases and build a stronger, more inclusive community where we truly see each other.
Presented in collaboration with the Office of Equity and Inclusion and Student Affairs and Campus Life.
