Finding America: Shake & Bake Saved My Life

About This Episode


It used to be called Charm City. Now, the Baltimore: Rise of Charm City team seeks the hidden, forgotten allure of Baltimore — and its modern charms, too — with storytelling in homes, assisted living facilities, libraries, churches, and community centers. In Shake & Bake Saved My Life Anthony Williams, the manager at the Shake & Bake Family Fun Center, calls the center a safe haven for old and young alike. In partnership with WEAA.

Finding America is an independent public media production comprised of 15 teams embedded for nine months at forward-moving public radio and television stations across the U.S. The series moves into communities large and small to invent new storytelling models with citizens who help us tell a new story of the rich diversity of America today.
