Baltimore, MD. USA. 3 May 2015
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake lifted a curfew in the city on Sunday, a step in returning to normalcy in the wake of the protests and riots that came in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody.
What normalcy means, however, depends on one’s perspective. While businesses will be able to reopen for nighttime business and baseball games can once again have fans in the seats, the disparities that played a role in bringing people onto the streets to protest have not gone away.
