The World That Brought Us Freddie Gray is a 5-part radio documentary produced by students at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Airing on WEAA in May, 2016, the series is a collaboration between the students, the UMBC American Studies Department, Baltimore Traces, and the Center for Emerging Media. During the past semester as part of the UMBC American Studies Class “Radio In American Culture” taught by Steiner Show producer Stefanie Mavronis and Marc Steiner, students produced 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.
