"I'm Freddie Gray. He's Freddie Gray. We're all Freddie Gray."
Yesterday we heard "Screaming in the Dark," a documentary by The Current's Pacinthe Mattar about the troubled relationship between police and black men in Baltimore. In it we heard how one family is still fighting for justice in the death of Tyrone West, who died after being arrested almost two years ago.
The day before meeting with Tyrone West's family, Pacinthe spent time in the Penn and North neighbourhood in West Baltimore, where a rally for Freddie Gray drew hundreds of people out to the street.
A young man named Lonnie Moore, stopped to talk. And as she began asking him about his experiences in Baltimore, they were soon joined by another man, Jarrod Jones. The two men were strangers to each other, but were soon exchanging and corroborating their stories of life as a black men in Baltimore.
Lonnie Moore and Jarrod Jones, spoke to The Current's Pacinthe Mattar in the Penn and North neighbourhood of Baltimore.
