A Party for Patronage (October 29, 2016) Because Jim Crow laws denied them access to social clubs, decades ago a group of African American men in Baltimore formed their own social group, ONOSE (which stands for One Night Only). Since then the group has expanded and changed, now focusing on raising funds for African American students in Baltimore City Public Schools. The name One Night Only still applies - as its annual dinner at Martin's West this year attests.
