Some show up with pie or casserole, but Baltimore writer Ericka Blount Danois was told to bring her recently purchased "Best of Soul Train" DVDs to her family's Thanksgiving dinner in 2009. When Todd Steven Burroughs, her Morgan State University teaching colleague at the time, also pressed to borrow the DVDs, Danois realized the influential variety show from the '70s still deeply resonated with her generation. Then the wheels began to turn. "There weren't that many shows that showcased black culture in the way 'Soul Train' did, so it was a very big deal for us," said Danois, 42, who lives next to Belvedere Square.

The $200,000 allocated to Best Buddies in the proposed $5.2 billion state education budget might not seem like much. For Kelly Smither-Kemp, a 14-year-old with mild retardation, the line item is huge. Best Buddies, which pairs special-education students with students in general education, is Kelly's social lifeline. In her general- and special-education classes at Magothy River Middle School in Arnold, Kelly struggles to make friends, said her mother, Rene Smither of Cape St. Claire. Through the Best Buddies chapter, one of three in county schools, Kelly has bonded with fellow seventh-grader Ericka Landeck.
