On Wednesday, April 29, 2015, a swelling crowd protested the death of Freddie Gray with a march called “NYC Rise Up & Shut It Down With Baltimore” that began in Union Square and continued to Times Square, with many holding signs in support of the 25-year-old Baltimore man, who died in police custody, while others carried signs that called attention to racism against African-Americans and police brutality. “New York is Baltimore and Baltimore’s New York,” sang protesters. According to various reports, more than 100 people were arrested, many for disorderly conduct after protesters blocked streets. Photos by C.S. Muncy for the Village Voice.
