The Epicenter of Unrest - Airs April 27th

The Epicenter of Unrest from The Signal
Producer Aaron Henkin creates an audio-portrait of the neighborhood that became the epicenter of civil unrest in the wake of Freddie Gray's death in police custody. These are the voices of Baltimore’s Penn North community just two days after the city was ravaged by arsons and looting last year. And this is just one chapter of WYPR's award-winning documentary series, Out of the Blocks. By sonically mapping one block at a time Mr. Henkin and musician Wendel Patrick are sharing the stories of their city in a way that's never been heard before.
