A half-century after MLK's death is Baltimore less segregated? Yes and no.

Summer fests

In addition to Artscape and the city's ethnic festivals, Baltimore offers several other festivals throughout the summer. Hon Fest (pictured) -- a celebration of beehives, Bawlmarese and Spandex in Hampden -- and the African American Heritage Festival -- which usually brings major music acts to the stadium parking lots -- take place in June. And, of course, the summer officially ends with the Maryland State Fair in late August. Find more festivals.
