Why did Baltimoreans rise up after the police murder of Freddie Gray on April 19, 2015? Brendan Walsh and Willa Bickham, who founded the Viva House Catholic Worker in west Baltimore 47 years ago, will discuss Freddie Gray’s death, the subsequent uprising it spurred, the pervasive racism and the myriad of problems plaguing Baltimore that his death magnified. Articles by and about Walsh and Bickham’s response to the Baltimore riots have appeared in the New York Catholic Worker and the National Catholic Reporter. See June/July 2015 issue of the New York Catholic Worker, and: articlehttp://ncronline.org/blogs/making-difference/baltimoreans-reflections-baltimore- riots.
