Soweto/Sowebo Martha Cooper

Soweto is a big city on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Sowebo is a small neighbourhood in downtown Baltimore (where ‘The Wire’ is based on).

Like Soweto, Sowebo played a historic role in the fight for racial equality. 

After the Tragic assassination of Martin Luther King there was a massive black uprising in Baltimore leaving many white shop owners to flea the area. More than 40 years later most of these establishments remain abandoned. Because of it’s desolate nature, someone decided to nickname the neighbourhood ‘Sowebo’ after Soweto and the name stuck.
