Marc Steiner: The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray, Episode 5 - Current Situation & Solutions
The fifth installment of The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray explores the current situation and solutions. 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 5: Current Situation & Solutions features the voices of housing and homeless advocate Jeff Singer, Elder CW Harris of Jubilee Arts, The Real News Network’s Eddie Conway, Morgan State University’s Dr. Lawrence Brown, Tara Huffman of the Open Society Institute-Baltimore, former Baltimore police officer Michael A. Wood Jr., The Guardian’s Baynard Woods, and Communities United’s Perry Hopkins.
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.
Production, research, editing, and voice work for today’s segment on Education was done by: Cody Selbert, Chris Lee, Claire Gautrois, Jourdan Grant, Evelyn Vartania
