White Privilege and Black Lives in the Baltimore Music Scene
During my first few years in Baltimore, when friends who lived elsewhere asked me about it, I said many of the same things I’d heard about it before I moved. That it was magical. That I’d never felt so at home. That the people were beautiful and purposed and supportive. If you asked me the same thing now, I’d still tell you how much I love this city. I’d also still say that living in Baltimore affords one a sense of freedom, except to add that the sense of freedom exists almost solely for non-black artists and musicians. Whatever benefits there are for non-black artists and musicians to live in and move to Baltimore are directly indebted to the majority black population of Baltimore. Our liberties come at the cost of theirs
