“Baltimore: A Political History” Revisited
A book talk by Matthew A. Crenson
When JHU’s Matt Crenson published his political history of Baltimore in 2017, he launched a spirited conversation about Charm City’s quirks and challenges as well as its prospects for the future. Politicians and public officials, academics and activists, members of the media and average citizens found insights and surprises in Professor Crenson’s monumental work that helped explain seemingly intractable problems and pointed to what might be next for a complex and beloved city. On the occasion of the release of the paperback edition of his book, Matt joins us for a recap of the two-year conversation he’s been having about Baltimore’s political history and the latest developments from the chambers of City Hall to the corner down the block.
