BINJ and The Real News Network Team-Up

May 31, 2018—While Baltimore Beat, cofounded by BINJ founders Brandon Soderberg and Baynard Woods, unexpectedly shuttered in March of 2018, our mission to deliver the kind of community-oriented journalism not being produced enough in Baltimore has not stopped.

BINJ, in collaboration with nonprofit news outlet the Real News Network helped produce and fund a piece by Ericka Blount Danois, “A Baltimore Teacher Uses Comedy to Reach Class Clowns” with photos by Kyle Pompey. The story focuses on Kiragu Beauttah’s “class clown” program at Frederick Douglass high school in Baltimore where he uses comedy to reach students and expand their horizons. You can read the story over at The Real News Network.
