‘Kindling’ Looks to Spark Conversations Across Races and Neighborhoods

Kindling’s vision team plans a unique community conversation. Pictured are: Andre Robinson, Nel Andrews, Jamie McDonald, Dale Terrill, and Quincey Gamble. Meryam Bouadjemi not pictured.

It’s safe to say that one factor Freddie Gray’s death and the ensuing unrest exposed is that Baltimore continues to be a city divided. We have a lot to learn about each other. Like other cities, many of us stick with who and what we know.  We tend to stay in our zones which makes it tough to engage with others outside of our routine. 

When key players from OneBaltimore, Innovation Village, Mt. Royal Community Development Corp, and the Light City team examined how to bridge these divides, they came up with a new idea called “Kindling.” As the name implies, Kindling is designed to spark one-on-one conversations between Baltimoreans who may never get the opportunity to know one another.

The inaugural Kindling event will be held this Saturday, April 30 at the Prince Hall Grand Lodge in historic Bolton Hill in Innovation Village. Consider taking part in a new type of community conversation built on the belief that progress will be made when we move past labels and see one another as individuals.
