Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore is a city of great religious complexity—from its roots as one of oldest Catholic communities in the United States, to its role as a key stop on the Underground Railroad, to its recent history as a center of the Black Lives Matter Movement, which has been seen as a departure from a long history of black social activism in that it emerged without deep roots in the city’s churches. In 2016 the American Pilgrimage Project went to Baltimore and recorded two days of conversations at St. Matthew Catholic Church and St. Francis of Assisi Church there. Many thanks to our hosts and to all who took part in the conversations.
