Voices of Baltimore
Baltimore has seen more than one dark day, but no one was prepared to witness what took place on April 27, 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray. Moved by the unrest, Maryland Public Television was able to gather stories from residents living in the city to voice their thoughts and concerns behind what some call the darkest days of Baltimore’s history.
This compilation of short narratives sheds light on the events of the day with the hope that our viewers will gain better insight into a community that feels their voices have been unheard for decades.
