Third World City in the First World
Baltimore and the Crisis in Urban America

Native son and longtime scholar of Baltimore's redevelopment history Marc Levine, a professor at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, comes to Johns Hopkins University Monday, Oct. 18, to discuss and debate the city's strengths, weaknesses and its future.

Levine, who is working on a book on the history of urban redevelopment, ghetto poverty and polarization in Baltimore since the 1950s, comes to Baltimore as part of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies' seminar series, entitled "New Developments in Social Policy."

Levine will speak and then take questions from audience members. He plans to also talk about the mayoral administrations of William Donald Schaefer and Kurt Schmoke and focus on lessons the next mayor of Baltimore might apply.

A history professor and director of the Center for Economic Development at UWM, Levine has studied Baltimore's redevelopment efforts for years and has written a number of articles on the subject.

He will speak between 4 and 6 p.m. on Oct. 18 in the Sherwood Room of Levering Hall on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.

The conference is not open to the general public, but reporters and editors are welcome to attend. To find out more about the Institute for Policy Studies, go to: http://www.jhu.edu/~ips/.
