If you want it, it's already yours

Jennifer Hasselbusch

If you've driven by Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School, you may have noticed a distinct change to front of the building - a beautiful mural on the front doors. Made possible by the T. Rowe Price Foundation and collaboration with the Jubilee Arts Center, the mural was conceptualized and led by illustrator Megan Lewis1. Titled "If you want it, it's already yours," she hopes that the mural will inspire incoming students. "Before the students stepped inside the school I wanted them to be visually boosted with a self reflecting, inspiring, and colorful image." To complete the piece, she was assisted by Tamyaja Johnson, Kristian Tyson, Taliayah Thorne, and Ka'Nyrah Wilson, students at EMES.

After 5 years of being shut down, the Crispus Attucks Recreation Center officially re-opened to the public on June 22, 2017. Mayor Catherine E. Pugh spoke at the press conference as well as Councilman Eric T. Costello and University of Maryland School of Social Work Dean Richard P. Barth. Closed by Baltimore City Recreation & Parks, these was much lobbying to have it reopened especially after the riots following the death of Freddie Gray in 2015.

'“Today would not be possible without the spirit of collaboration among the Department of Parks and Recreation, the University of Maryland School of Social Work, Promise Heights, community associations, and the families who called this neighborhood time and time again to come together, to be together, to work together,” Pugh said.'

The recreation center is located off the back of Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School and will be a site for the Baltimore City Recreation & Parks summer program, CAMP BALTIMORE!, which will offer academic enrichment, field trips, and activities for children in the neighborhood.
