“In a sense it looks way crazier when you look at the pictures,” says Baltimore-based activist and musician Ryan Harvey, who traveled to Lesvos, Greece, on a mission to help refugees there last month. “But when you’re actually there, they’re just people.” For Harvey, who works as a construction worker in Baltimore when he’s not on tour playing music, four weeks spent on the Greek island working with the grassroots NGO CK Team was about making a human connection with refugees and gaining firsthand knowledge of war’s impact. Listen to him talk about his trip in-person at Red Emma’s, Thursday, March 24.
