(Launched) August 29, 2015

Welcome to Bmore411.Blog - a place for me to share thoughts and ideas with you about Baltimore Maryland, and surrounding areas. Of course my primary concern is with the health and welfare of the African American Community of Baltimore Maryland.
I am committed to seeing the Community grow politically, economically, socially, culturally and otherwise, in ways that are empowering.

I do hope that in time, with my work and effort, and your support for this site - Bmore411-com - will become a relevant asset in the overall development of Baltimore Maryland.

It promises to be a busy weekend for the health conscious green-lifestyle folks with both the Vegan SoulFest taking place this Saturday (see Calendar listing below)
Remembering last year, I advise that you save plenty of room for food tasting, and plenty of time for demonstrations and presentations. Also, carry a few empty backs for bringing home sample products.

August 7, 2016

Today I am absolutely overjoyed in having launched a new radio program - The 411 Cultural Forum (Radio Program) - featuring guests to discuss upcoming cultural events, entertainment and information relative to African Americans. My initial focus will be for the Maryland, DC, Virginia and Delaware areas. I'm looking forward to having performance artist, producers, writers, and just any and everyone who has something culturally related taking place...
