Ensuring a ‘diverse range of voices’ in revival of historic Baltimore neighborhood

June 6, 2023

The Upton neighborhood in West Baltimore is famous for its role as one of the city’s earliest and most vibrant African American neighborhoods. Many of Baltimore’s civil rights and cultural icons — including Thurgood Marshall and Cab Calloway — have lived among its historic row houses.
