Humanities: Baltimore & Fishbowl

Today some folks will present their Culture & Composition slide decks.

Then we'll do an activity and discussion around the slide show Mr. Brackett sends you regarding Baltimore and talk about what's happening there.  You'll write an explanation of the story the images tell and then there will be a discussion following.
