The purpose of the UAL Field Team’s children’s book, Billie Back in Baltimore is to capture the history of Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor from a child’s perspective. We hope that this book can be used as a guide to understanding the values that guide communities through uncertain times. Additionally, we also hope to provide local Black history to children living in proximity to, West Baltimore, which was once an epicenter of black culture. At the core of this idea, we believe that this book embodies the concept of the past informing the present.
