May 19, 2016 – Segment 1
Students involved in a recent project at UMBC have been collecting stories of Baltimore communities as they change and grow, meeting people where they are and listening to their stories. The project is called Baltimore Traces: Communities in Transition and it’s made possible by a Hrabowski Innovation Fund grant. This semester’s radio series, Downtown Voices, features students talking to city dwellers about their thoughts on the past, present, and future of Baltimore.
Today you will hear “The Uprising,” a snapshot of the movement that developed in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death, and the effect it has had on our city. Written by Michael Stone and Produced by Calvin Perry, both of Baltimore Traces.
