St. Louis County Library presents bestselling author Wes Moore.
When Freddie Gray was arrested for possessing an "illegal knife" in April 2015, he was, by eyewitness accounts, treated "roughly" by Baltimore police. By the end of his trip in the police van, Gray was in a coma he would never recover from. The killing led to five days described alternately as a riot or an uprising that caught the nation's attention. Bestselling author and former White House fellow, Wes Moore tells the story of the Baltimore uprising, both hrough both his own observations, and through the eyes of other Baltimoreans. Each shifting point of view contributes to an engrossing, cacophonous account of one of the most consequential moments in our recent history.
