NAACP Statement on One Year Anniversary of Baltimore Unrest

BALTIMORE, MD - The NAACP today released the following statement on the one year anniversary of Baltimore unrest:

“One year ago today, the NAACP and the nation watched in shock as police in riot gear confronted a mob of teenagers on the streets of Baltimore, sparking a series of fires and acts of violence that caused more than 200 arrests, and resulted in millions in damage to property in one night. It was hard to witness, as the streets of the city that is home to our national headquarters, became engulfed in chaos.
