Last weekend I saw the Barnstormers’ production of Cabaret. It was the second week of the show’s run, so I had some background on the musical. It takes place in 1930s Berlin. There is a lot of sex. A Nazi is involved. It’s an interesting show, to say the least.
Ask Baltimore musician Cris Jacobs if he has a favorite song from his most recent album, Color Where You Are, and he’s unable to give a direct answer.
Because I keep Kosher, I often feel restricted in Baltimore. When friends and I go out to a restaurant, there’s always a bit of hesitation on my part: what will I actually be able to eat there?
Humanities in the Village, an ongoing series of workshops at Bird in Hand, hosted a discussion titled “Religion and Inequality in Baltimore” on Monday. Harold Morales, an associate professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Morgan State University led the discussion. He was joined by Amy Landau, the former director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Islamic, South and Southeast Asian art at the Walters Art Museum.
The Student Government Association (SGA) voted on several new resolutions at their weekly meeting on Tuesday. Among the resolutions passed were the Fusion Food Festival Funding Bill; the One Love Funding Bill; the Wellness Week Funding Bill; and the Interim Facilities Resolution. Another bill, the Campus Idling Resolution, was discussed and then tabled for a future meeting.
It’s time to talk about the Hopkins bubble again.
Teaching for Change’s Alison Kysia led a discussion titled “The Story of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf” on Monday. Teaching for Change is a D.C. nonprofit organization promoting social justice initiatives through educational outreach in schools. The event featured a partial screening of By the Dawn’s Early Light: Chris Jackson’s Journey to Islam, followed by an interactive conversation about black and Islamic representation in media. The Johns Hopkins University Muslim Association (JHUMA), the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Department of Islamic Studies co-hosted the event.
“What do you identify yourself as?”
“Just a cool place to come in, have some great food, look around and see some cool stuff.”
Writing about mental health is a touchy subject for me.
Baltimore certainly recognizes the holiday season. Buses say “Happy Holidays,” the Inner Harbor has set up the Christmas Village and Homewood Campus is preparing for the Lighting of the Quads, which will take place on Dec. 10.
Thanksgiving Break was a much-needed time to avoid thinking about school. And yet, just a few days into it, alum Michael Bloomberg made an announcement that immediately drew my attention back to Hopkins. Bloomberg explained in a Nov. 18 New York Times op-ed that he was giving $1.8 billion to Hopkins to be used for financial aid.
It was a Tuesday, and I was hungry.
I hate that these words need to be said.
It’s spooky season, and no, I’m not referring to midterms that are just around the corner.
October began last week, and spooky season is here. Along with the usual pre-Halloween traditions — haunted houses, scary movies, pumpkin spice (that’s all I want from fall, really) — a new event arrived to the city this year. Last Saturday and Sunday, the International Edgar Allan Poe Festival and Awards was held.
Yes, this is a piece by a college student lamenting the state of politics in this country.
Baltimore is no longer officially known as “The City That Reads,” but this weekend, it may as well revert to its old slogan. That’s because it’s finally the time of year that we (or at least, I and 17,000 other people, according to Facebook) have been waiting for. No, it’s not fall break quite yet, but it’ll still be an exciting few days — the Baltimore Book Festival is this weekend, taking over the Inner Harbor from Friday to Sunday.
It’s no secret that I love museums.
Would any of us particularly care about Baltimore were we not Hopkins students? Despite recent promotion as a fun, exciting destination, our city has yet to appeal to the masses like Los Angeles or New York. And if you had previously visited Baltimore, it probably wasn’t to our neighborhood. For those who are tourists, the main draw of Baltimore is the Inner Harbor.
