Marc Steiner: The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray, Episode 4 - Housing
The fourth installment of The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray is about housing. The segment was produced by students at the University of Maryland Baltimore County as part of a 5-part radio documentary, in collaboration with the UMBC American Studies Department, Baltimore Traces, and the Center for Emerging Media.
Episode 4: Housing features the voices of Rochelle Barksdale of McCulloh Homes, Tyesha Williams of Gilmor Homes, homeless persons’ and housing advocate Jeff Singer, and Communities United’s John Comer.
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. Today’s episode focuses on Housing.
Production, research, editing, and voice work for today’s segment on Education was done by: Dalton Maize, Kamilla Keldiyarova, Navaal Mahdi, and James Harris.
