Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

The election of the first black US president in 2009 offered hope to millions of African Americans across the country, and the eastern city of Baltimore was no exception. But did the Obama presidency manage to spark actual positive change for black communities in inner cities? In 2012, Fault Lines went to Baltimore, one of the most dangerous cities in the US, to try and understand the fundamental interplay of race, crime, poverty, incarceration and economics. In 2018, REWIND went back to Baltimore to discover that not much had changed for the city's black communities.
