Baltimore Black HistoryGrowing up in Florida, Mary Rosemond saw her mother fight to stop the demolition of their home for a highway. In 1958, she discovered the city's plan to build an expressway through Greater Rosemont and her own West Baltimore home. Rosemond and her neighbors organized and protested. In 1968, they joined forces with the citywide Movement Against Destruction (MAD) and together they stopped the highway at the city line. Mary Rosemond continued as a life-long advocate for her neighborhood.
