The voices in the music above were recorded during the clean-up/protest/gathering at the corner of Pennsylvania and North Ave in Baltimore on April 28, 2015 - the day after the looting that was ignited after the death of Freddie Gray.

Some of the people interviewed had been standing in two rows of lines between the police line and protesters in order to protect each group from inciting the other. Others were cleaning up after the looting or handing out water bottles to the cleaners. Meanwhile others interviewed were part of the crowd that is shown in the video marching to nonviolently push back an armored police vehicle that had entered the intersection where the peaceful gathering was happening.

Earlier in the day people were playing music and dancing capoeira in an attempt to bring the community back together after the night of violence.
