Baltimore takes to the streets to ‘Stop the Violence’

Stop the Violence -03

With the temperature striking close to 90 degrees about 500 men from Baltimore City and beyond paraded  Friday along North Avenue to help deter “violent crime” in the city.

I caught up with the activists of the 300 Men March at North Avenue and Charles Street–close to the finish line for the event. To learn more details about the march check out the Facebook page.

Speaking on camera are: activist Duane “Shorty” Davis; a volunteer at the event; and the Rev. Ryan Preston Palmer. He’s the pastor of the Seventh Baptist Church, which is located at North Avenue and  St. Paul Street.
