Freights n’ Ravens – Martha Cooper's Photographs from the Baltimore Ravens Celebration
Last Monday I went to the Ravens Super Bowl celebration. The football stadium is a short distance from Sowebo, the neighborhood I’ve been documenting since 2006. So I just walked over and joined the100,000+ screaming fans who turned out for the event. The Super Bowl championship really lifted the spirits of Baltimoreans and the city went wild.
Since the players were parading slowly towards the stadium from City Hall, I climbed up to the top deck and waited outside the seating area for an hour or so to see if I could catch a glimpse of them as they arrived. Just as they were coming into the stadium, a freight with graffiti passed by and really made my day. What a great combo!
