Recorded by Michael McDermott.

"It was a protest in Philadelphia at City Hall on May 1, 2015. This protest was a specific response to the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody a few weeks earlier. It was part of a wider moment and response to deaths of black people at the hands of police through out 2015-16 under the banner of “Black Lives Matter"."
