On April 18, 2015, the city of Baltimore erupted in mass protests in response to the brutal murder of Freddie Gray by police. Devin Allen was there, and his iconic photos of the Baltimore uprising became a viral sensation. Each photo revealed the personality, beauty, and spirit of Baltimore and its people, as his camera complicated popular ideas about the "ghetto."  This session features Allen in conversation with Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor about the role of his work in presenting a narrative about the Baltimore uprising and its root causes that runs counter to the mainsteam media's depictions of racism and poverty.
