The death of Freddie Gray brought protests and a wave of intense media attention to Baltimore. The media implicated nearby high school students in the crime and destruction, whether they participated in it or not. The Reginald F. Lewis Museum offered an exhibition space for them to create a response. Students address the uprising, police brutality, police surveillance and the one-sided media portrayal of their neighborhoods in this exhibit. This presentation will include successes and shortcomings of this collaboration. Education, Audience Research & Evaluation track generously supported by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
