The Seven Black Blocks

  • In Finding Baltimore, a community art course at MICA, my partner and I were assigned to map Pigtown Baltimore. Through much research and exploration of the community, my partner and I were able to find the oldest man in Pigtown. The entire project is based on our conversations with Mr. Buster, the oldest man in Pigtown. While talking to Mr. Buster he discussed how before a period of expansion, Pigtown used to be made up of 7 blocks. This video is the third iteration of the project.
