May 11, 2016 – Segment 1
We begin the show with Part 3 of The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray, a 5-part radio documentary produced by students at the University of Maryland Baltimore County in collaboration with the UMBC American Studies Department, Baltimore Traces, and the Center for Emerging Media. During the past semester as part of the UMBC American Studies Class “Radio In American Culture” taught by Steiner Show producer Stefanie Mavronis and myself, students have worked to produce a series highlighting the voices of residents of Baltimore City who have all in one way or another been affected by the death of Freddie Gray and the Uprising that followed.
Episode 3 on Education features the voices of Dominque Stevenson of the American Friends Service Committee, Gilmor Homes resident Tyesha Harrell, Communities United’s John Comer, Morgan State University’s Dr. Lawrence Brown, Megan Carpenter who works at Benjamin Franklin High School, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and UMBC President Dr. Freeman Hrabowski.
Production, research, editing, and voice work for today’s segment on Education was done by: Daniel Cummuta, Seamus Ertel, Autumn Kramer, Chelsey Wells, Darrian Cate, Tyler Walsh, Heather Harvey, and Turrel David.
