Best Poetry Events In Baltimore

The art of poetry requires much more emotion and talent than what “roses are red, violets are blue” would lead one to believe, and so a certain respect should be given to those who would wear their heart on their sleeve when writing or performing poetry. Celebrate National Poetry Month by embracing the words of fellow Baltimoreans and perhaps sharing some of your own.

Best Ways To Celebrate Women’s History Month 2013 In Baltimore

In 1978, in Santa Rosa, Calif., more than 100 women came together and entered classrooms of schools and local communities to give presentations on the topic of women’s history. An essay competition and a parade were held. The event was the first informal celebration of women and the contributions they’ve made in world history. Building on its success a movement grew that culminated in February of 1981, when President Jimmy Carter designated the week of March 8, (International Women’s Day), as the National Women’s History Week. Within six years 14 states had declared the month of March as Women’s History Month; and the next year the U.S. Congress officially designated the observance. Throughout March, in the Baltimore area, there are many opportunities to celebrate the importance of women in the history of humanity. Special events and opportunities to get involved are available for both women and men of all ages. This year’s theme is Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
