Baltimore activists featured in book produced by students
The product of a semester-long collaboration between Loyola College in Maryland and the Students Sharing Coalition (SSC) is a recently published book about 18 Baltimore youth activists, “Changing the World Around Us: Profiles in Youth Activism.”
Students in Cinthia Gannett’s writing class interviewed the activists and wrote profiles while students in Peggy O’Neill’s class contributed sections on history, operation and the mission of SSC. The book was designed by senior Kristen Cesiro and Loyola graphic design professor Diane Samet, a member of the SSC board of directors.
The book was inspired by Loyola’s Year of the City initiative which celebrated Baltimore’s history and traditions while considering the challenges the city faces today.
A celebration was held April 26 during the Students Sharing Coalition’s awards ceremony featuring the Honorable Catherine Curran O’Malley, first lady of the State of Maryland.
