In April 2015, Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man in Baltimore, died while in police custody after sustaining a spinal cord injury. How he received the injury and delays in providing medical care added to the mystery surrounding his death, which set off several days of violent protests and looting and revived the controversy of police bias and brutality toward black men. Amidst the chaos, Marilyn J. Mosby, the state’s attorney for Baltimore, filed criminal charges against six police officers — three of whom were black and three white. This TBook, a selection of articles from The New York Times archives, chronicles the aftermath of Mr. Gray’s death, its effect on the city of Baltimore and the trials of the six police officers.
