Hotel Revival Baltimore Celebrates Black History Month With Experiences Reflecting A Tapestry Of Cultural Heritage

Hotel Revival Baltimore, an award-winning hotel within the New Waterloo portfolio of properties, has announced a line-up of programming celebrating Black History Month. 

On Sunday, February 25, the hotel is hosting its first-ever Community Kickback. From 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., attendees can enjoy local food trucks, including Soul Smoked BBQ and Dream Street Cuisine, along with a 20-vendor shopping experience courtesy of Blk Ass Flea Market.

Just a day ahead of the tip-off of the 2024 CIAA Men’s & Women’s Basketball Tournament, Hotel Revival’s Community Kickback is getting the party started off the court. In partnership with The Sneaker Exhibit, the hotel is bringing a resale pop-up to sneakerheads and attendees.

The Community Kickback is a ticketed event, with proceeds benefitting mental-health support center Roberta’s House. Attendees must be 21+, and their I.D.s will be checked upon entry. Community Kickback tickets are available starting February 4 at:

“As we usher in a month dedicated to the dynamic experience of Black storytelling, we’re excited to present this inaugural Community Kickback,” said Ramond Sneed, Hotel Revival’s general manager. “My colleagues and I believe in the power of hospitality to make an impact, and this timely celebration is a testament to that ethos.”

The chance to make an impact extends to visiting guests, too. On rooms booked February 1 to February 29, 10% of revenue will be donated to Baltimore Beat, a Black-led nonprofit news outlet serving residents citywide. Hotel Revival is also offering guests an opportunity to take Baltimore’s Black history home with them.

Those who stay overnight February 1 to February 29 will enjoy a limited-edition postcard printed by the I. Henry Photo Project. As the grandson of I. Henry Phillips, Sr., who chronicled the working-class experience of 20th-century Baltimore through a lifetime of photographs, Webster Phillips, III, is maintaining this photojournalist tradition by helping guests pass forward the history of his grandfather’s city. Guests may choose to keep the I. Henry postcard or send it anywhere in the world from the Hotel Revival front desk, free of charge.

Also during Black History Month, Hotel Revival is hosting the second installment of its workshop series, The Remedy, which aims to promote self-discovery among attendees. In the February 7 session, exploring the theme “Men Deserve Flowers,” Success Coach Jasmine Garland is poised to transcend conventional norms and initiate candid discussions aimed at challenging stereotypes associated with masculinity.

Being more than a hotel by partnering with local businesses, creators and entrepreneurs, Hotel Revival engages in philanthropic efforts and assists the community wherever the need may be. Partnerships include those with Lor Tush and Black Acres Roastery. For more information on Hotel Revival’s community efforts, visit
