Synopsis

Based on new evidence and deep reporting, the riveting truth about a case that has become a touchstone in the struggle for racial justice and Black lives.



They Killed Freddie Gray exposes a conspiracy among Baltimore leaders to cover up what actually happened to Freddie Gray, who was fatally injured in the back of a police van in April 2015. After Gray's death, Baltimore became ground zero for Black Lives Matter and racial justice protests that exploded across the country. State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby became a hero when she charged six officers in Gray's death, and the trials of the officers generated national headlines for two years.



Yet the cause of Gray's death has remained a mystery. A viral video showed an officer leaning on Gray's back while he cried out in pain. But the autopsy concluded he was fatally injured later that morning while the van was in motion-during its notorious, multi-stop "rough ride"-from sudden impact to his head. None of the officers were convicted of any crimes.



They Killed Freddie Gray solves the mystery of Gray's death by uncovering new evidence of how he was killed by police and how his cause of death was covered up. In coordination with a documentary film being produced by MRC Entertainment, this book revisits a pivotal moment in US criminal justice history, providing new insight into what happened, the historical structures of power that allowed it to happen, and the personalities and dynamics involved.
