BALTIMORE — Dante Barksdale, a man so many call the heart and soul of Safe Streets, was killed in the neighborhood that he grew up in.
Now, community leaders are working to make it a sacred ground.
Friends, family and Baltimore ceasefire found Erricka Bridgeford gathered on Douglas Court in Southeast Baltimore for a sacred space ritual for Barksdale.
"This man who took this life came down this pathway...we're going to fill this pathway with a new energy that's full of love," she said.
Barksdale was shot and killed last Sunday. Police are still working to find a suspect.
