Thousands took to the streets of Baltimore City on Saturday, April 25th to protest the death of 25 year old Baltimorean, Freddie Gray. The protest began peacefully as protestors marched from the West District to Baltimore City Hall in downtown Baltimore. Protests became violent when protestors moved through the city to Oriole Park at Camden Yards where they blocked main roads and tried to stop others from entering the ballgame.

    I am the author of a soon-to-be published book on the political history of Baltimore. I would like to use one of your photographs of the Freddie Gray uprising as one of its illustrations. How do I go about acquiring rights to use one of your pictures?
