Award winning photographer John Clark Mayden has been documenting life in Baltimore’s African American neighborhoods since the 1970s. His photographs capture the ordinary joys and sorrows, quiet moments, and daily realities of life: kids on their bikes and roller skates, old timers catching a breeze on their front stoops, busy people striding through the snow. Join The Sheridan Libraries for a discussion between John and Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Lawrence Jackson about John’s photos and what they say about the beauty and heartbreak of everyday life, Black life, in this American city. The event highlights the John Clark Mayden Collection, a gift to Johns Hopkins University through the Africana Archives Initiative, a partnership between the Billie Holiday Project for Liberation Arts and the Sheridan Libraries. We thank the Mayden family for this significant and transformative donation.

HopkinsatHome August 25, August 25, TuesdaySponsored by the Hopkins in Law Affinity Tune in on Tuesday, August 25 at Noon EDT. As the United States examines the ways in which existing criminal justice and policing policies at the local, state, and federal levels affect Black Americans and communities of color, many of us are left wondering about the role of our legislators. Following nearly a week of civil unrest following the death of George Floyd, Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman William C. Smith, Jr. initiated legislation to address officer training, use of force, militarization, prosecutorial intervention, liability caps, the disclosure of personnel records, and The Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights. During this hour, engage with our panelists as they discuss Sen. Smith’s proposed legislation and the impact of George Floyd’s death as it relates to police, policy, and politics in Maryland and beyond. MEET OUR PANELISTS The Honorable Senator William C. Smith, Jr. (A&S '06), Chair, Judicial Proceedings Committee William C. Smith Jr. was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. His parents were young adults during the height of the civil rights movement. It was their struggle and sacrifice that opened doors of opportunity for Will. His parents taught him the importance of a good education and showed him the benefit of living in a caring, engaged community. With the support of his family, Will became a first-generation college student when he attended and graduated from the College of William and Mary. He would go on to earn a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University and a law degree from William and Mary. After college, Will enrolled in AmeriCorps where he worked as a community engagement leader for IMPACT Silver Spring and worked at the ACLU as a Legislative Assistant. During law school Will worked at a law firm handling employment discrimination cases and sought a commission as an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, a position in which Will continues to serve in today. (Read Will’s full military biography here.) In 2010, Will received a White House appointment to serve as a Director at the Department of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama. In 2014, Will was elected to represent District 20 in the Maryland House of Delegates. As a member of the Judiciary Committee, Will served on the criminal justice and family law subcommittee. Along with these roles, Will was a member of several key workgroups including Justice Reinvestment, Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights and Death with Dignity. In 2016, Will was appointed to represent District 20 in the Maryland State Senate, making him the first African-American Senator from Montgomery County. In the Senate, Will has worked to forge relationships with his colleagues from across the state and political spectrum which has allowed him to become an effective legislator in Annapolis. In 2019, Will became the 50th Chairman of the Judicial Proceedings Committee. He is the first African American to hold that post. As Chairman, Will has championed robust criminal justice reform measures and has led efforts to provide economic and educational opportunities for all Marylanders. Today, Will continues to practice law, his practice focuses on national security and employment discrimination. Will lives in Silver Spring with his wife, Camille, daughter, Jacqueline, and dog, Monty. The Honorable Senator Charles E. Sydnor III (A&S '96), Member, Judicial Proceedings Committee Senator Charles E. Sydnor III was born and raised in Baltimore City, Maryland and is a resident of Ellicott Mills.  Charles is employed as an Assistant General Counsel with the Columbia, Maryland based affordable housing organization, Enterprise Community Investment, Inc.  In addition to his work at Enterprise, Charles was sworn into the Maryland Senate on January 8, 2020 to represent District 44, which includes communities in both Baltimore City and Baltimore County, and serves on the Judicial Proceedings Committee.  Additionally, Charles was appointed to Joint Committee on Cybersecurity, Information Technology, and Biotechnology, the Joint Committee on Ending Homelessness, and the Law Enforcement Body Camera Task Force. Prior to his time in the Senate, Charles served in Maryland’s House of Delegate, where he served on the House Judiciary Committee chairing both the Civil Law and Procedures subcommittee and the Criminal Law and Procedures subcommittee during his tenure. During his first term in office, Charles successfully introduced legislation for police departments to adopt body cameras and has worked on legislation to regulate the use of certain surveillance devices by law enforcement agencies. Charles matriculated at and received his Juris Doctor and Masters of Policy Sciences from the University of Maryland School of Law and University of Maryland Baltimore County, respectively.  Charles also matriculated and received his Bachelor’s degree with honors from Johns Hopkins University and his A-course diploma from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute.  Charles is admitted to practice before Maryland and District of Columbia courts and the United States Supreme Court. Charles is a recipient of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Black Law Student Association’s Graduate of the Year Award (2020), Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition’s Most Promising Legislator Award (2017), Daily Record’s Leadership in Law Award (2012), the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s Public Service Award (2000) and Johns Hopkins University’s Student Excellence Award for Leadership and Service Award (1996). Ganesha Martin, Esq., President, G.M.M. Consulting, LLC Ganesha Martin, Esq. is a change agent working at the intersection of diversity, law, and police reform. Passionate about creating safe spaces for suppressed voices, she works to improve the culture of policing in our country’s most divided cities. Martin began her legal career as a litigator but her work with Baltimore police would be where her legal acumen, strategic and diplomatic communication, and advocacy sensibilities would converge. While there, Freddie Gray’s death thrust the city and its police department into the national spotlight. After the death of Freddie Gray, Martin shifted her focus to improving the culture of policing in Baltimore, making community and police reconciliation her priority. She led the effort to adopt a court-ordered federal Consent Decree and set the Baltimore Police Department up to successfully come into compliance. She was part of the Baltimore Police Department’s negotiations and implementation teams for structural reforms focusing on how police interact with youth, use of force, stop and frisk, de-escalation, body-worn cameras, and interacting with the those suffering from mental and behavioral health crises. Martin’s current work focuses squarely on uniting communities of color and the police who swear to serve and protect them. In addition to Baltimore, she has consulted on Consent Decree, compliance, and police reform matters for the Cleveland and Milwaukee Police Departments. Never one to be intimidated by what others see as impossible, Martin is using her talent to move the needle on some of society’s most challenging social problems. Her ability to translate both sides of an issue, quickly overcome distrust, and move things forward help her get things done. Her commitment to using communication as a bridge to unite opposing groups, diffuse conflict and foster real human connection make her an invaluable asset to anyone seeking to bridge an insurmountable divide. But her fundamental belief in the universal human potential for rehabilitation and understanding pushes her towards her biggest goal to create practical pathways to progress. Martin received her BA in Journalism and Asian Studies from Baylor University and her J.D. from Texas Tech University School of Law.  MEET OUR MODERATOR Dr. Keshia Pollack Porter (Bloomberg '06), Associate Dean for Faculty, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Keshia M. Pollack Porter, PhD, MPH, is a Professor of Health Policy and Management and Associate Dean for Faculty. Her work uses injury epidemiology, health impact assessment (HIA), and mixed methods to advance policies that create safe, healthy, and equitable environments where people live, work, play, and travel. She focuses on identifying policy solutions that address social determinants of health, reduce disparities, and advance health equity. She regularly engages with policymakers to promote evidence-informed policy decisions and advance Health in All Policies (HiAP) at the local, state, and federal levels.

SchoolofMedicine HopkinsatHomeSeptember 08, September 8, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Tune in on Tuesday, September 8 at Noon EDT. We’ve always known that there are important differences between women and men. But this can become particularly important when thinking about health risk factors and recovery after a life altering event like a stroke. In this livestream we will discuss some of the key differences between men and women with respect to stroke and the importance of individualizing stroke prevention strategies and recovery programs to improve long-term outcomes. For more information about Dr. Marsh's work, visit https://www.marshlab.org/.  Dr. Marsh is a board certified vascular neurologist whose research interests include post-stroke recovery and patient-centered outcomes. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Neuroscience from the Johns Hopkins University where she continued her training for medical school, neurology residency, and cerebrovascular fellowship.  She is currently an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine within the Cerebrovascular Division.   Dr. Marsh’s research career began as an undergraduate when she studied recovery of language and attention in patients with acute stroke. As a resident, her interests expanded to include the acute management of stroke, and building tools to predict potential complications. She was awarded an R25 Research Training Grant through the National Institute of Health (NIH), and developed a model to quantify risk of hemorrhagic transformation in patients with acute ischemic stroke and an indication for anticoagulation. As a junior faculty member, she received a Johns Hopkins Clinician Scientist Award to further support her research efforts. She has greater than 30 peer reviewed publications in journals such as Stroke, Annals of Neurology, and the European Journal of Neurology, along with 3 book chapters, and 2 invited editorials.  In 2014, Dr. Marsh was named the Medical Director of the Stroke Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. She implemented the Bayview Stroke Intervention Clinic (BaSIC), a multi-disciplinary follow-up clinic designed to promote patient follow-up, reduce hospital readmission rates, and enhance post-stroke recovery. Her current focus is on the under-reported neurologic deficits (particularly with respect to depression, fatigue, and cognition) that significantly impair long-term functional outcome and patient satisfaction, despite scores on metrics such as the NIH stroke scale that indicate a “good recovery”. Her research, using magnetoencephalography (MEG) to determine the underlying pathophysiology of cognitive deficits following minor stroke, is supported by the American Heart Association and the NIH. She leads a team of vascular neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, neurointensivists, and rehabilitation specialists, who work together to provide the highest level of care to all stroke patients, resulting in better functional outcomes and improved quality of life.  /event/HAHMarsh

NitzeSchoolofAdvancedInternationalStudies HopkinsatHomeSeptember 15, September 15, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Tune in to watch live on Tuesday, September 15 at Noon EDT The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the vulnerability of global supply chains, as countries around the world have shut their borders and economies have screeched to a halt. Few industries are more globalized than the clean energy sectors that we urgently need to combat climate change, and few rely more strongly on China. China currently makes nearly half of the world’s wind turbines, more than two thirds of solar panels, and nearly 70 percent of lithium-ion batteries, a critical component of both electric vehicle and on-grid storage. As governments debate aggressive stimulus packages to encourage an economic recovery and announce bold goals to onshore manufacturing of critical technologies, what are the impacts on cleantech industries and our ability to meet global climate targets? Join Jonas Nahm as he reviews past attempts to revive domestic economies through green economic policy strategies and examines their prospects in the context of the current recession.  Jonas Nahm is Assistant Professor of Energy, Resources, and Environment at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Jonas' research interests focus on the intersection of economic and industrial policy, energy policy, and environmental politics. In particular, he studies the role of the state in processes of industrial restructuring that accompany responses to climate change and clean energy transitions more broadly. His work utilizes clean energy transitions in China, Germany, and the United States to engage two debates in comparative political economy: (1) the role of the state in shaping the international division of labor in highly globalized industries, and (2) sources of state capacity in interest group politics during periods of industrial restructuring. In addition to his work on renewable energy industries, Jonas has ongoing research projects on the politics of greening the global auto sector and the subnational determinants of climate policies. Prior to coming to Johns Hopkins SAIS, Jonas was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. He holds a PhD in Political Science from MIT and speaks German and Mandarin Chinese./event/HAHJonasNahm

The United States began adopting electronic voting after the 2000 election fiasco. Avi Rubin will lead a discussion describing how this process began, the problems with security in e-voting, as well as tradeoffs of various other approaches to voting. Join in to explore where the US is now and issues with the upcoming election, especially with COVID19 as a backdrop. Dr. Aviel (Avi) D. Rubin is Professor of Computer Science and Technical Director of the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Rubin has focused most of his professional career on the security of electronic voting. He was Director of the NSF Accurate Center for Secure Elections and served in 6 elections as a Maryland Elections Judge. He testified about the security of voting machines before the U.S. House and Senate on multiple occasions, and he is the author of several books about computer security, including Brave New Ballot (Random House). Rubin is a frequent keynote speaker at industry and academic conferences, and he delivered widely viewed TED talks in 2011 and 2015. In January, 2004 Baltimore Magazine named Rubin a Baltimorean of the Year for his work in safeguarding the integrity of our election process, and he is also the recipient of the 2004 Electronic Frontiers Foundation Pioneer Award. Rubin has a B.S, ('89), M.S.E ('91), and Ph.D. ('94) from the University of Michigan.   /event/HAHAviRubin
