Local cultural heritage organizations and university faculty members are working together to create an online digital collection related to the events surrounding the death of Freddie Gray in police custody on April 19, 2015. The public is invited to submit content to the online project.

Angela Koukoui, a UB undergraduate and Langsdale Library student assistant, is one of two interns currently working at the Maryland Historical Society on building the digital repository. She was recently interviewed alongside Maryland Historical staff member, Joe Tropea, about the collaborative initiative. You can view their online interviews on Channel 2 and Channel 13.
