  • Protesting for Change: Wes Moore with Willie Geist

    24/07/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    When Freddie Gray was arrested for possessing an “illegal knife” in April 2015, he was, by eyewitness accounts that video evidence later confirmed, treated “roughly” as police loaded him into a vehicle. By the end of his trip in the police van, Gray was in a coma from which he would never recover. In the wake of a long history of economic inequality and racial injustice in Baltimore, this tragedy felt like a final straw—it led to a week of protests and then five days described alternately as a riot or an uprising that set the entire city on edge, and caught the nation’s attention. While attending Gray’s funeral, Wes Moore saw every strata of the city come together: grieving mothers; members of the city’s wealthy elite; activists; and the long-suffering citizens of Baltimore—all looking to comfort each other, but also looking for answers. Join him to get his unique perspective of the uprising and the events that followed leading up today. Purchase Five Days-The Fiery Reckoning of an American City here.
