Youth Trip to Baltimore
November 12, 2014
Newark, NJ – We arrived in Baltimore, Maryland around 2:30 am November 11, 2014 and went
for lunch at the Hard Rock Café. We all enjoyed few different foods as the 90’s rock played in
the backround. After eating and enjoying short chit chat we then made our way back to the
coach bus which we arrived in.
About the Blacks in Wax Museum
We then made our way to the Blacks in Wax Museum around 2:00 pm where we saw
our ancestors and civil rights leader standing tall as figures. Their stories on plaques and the
middle passage down below. The slaves on the ship were treated worse than cattle and this
made me appreciate my ancestors even more.
About Wide Angle
We arrived at the Wide Angle Youth Media Workshop Around 4:00pm and after seeing a
presentation got to meet and interview the students. They were kind and eager individuals.
There program was much like our on in many different aspects. We both use media, are both
youth programs, and more.
YMS is th Youth Media Symposium. It is an afterschool advocacy program that teaches
leadership skills, advocacy skills, media production, and public speaking skills. It is a great place
for students to get these skills and learn through media production.
