Hundreds of demonstrators march toward the Baltimore Police Western District station during a protest against police brutality and the death of Freddie Gray in the Sandtown neighborhood April 22, 2015

This segment originally aired live from 7-9pm ET on July 8th, 2015, during a special evening broadcast in collaboration with WEAA Baltimore, WYPR Baltimore, and St. Louis Public Radio. An edited version was rebroadcasted on The Brian Lehrer Show on July 10th, 2015. The unedited audio can be found here.

This summer marks one full year since the deaths of Eric Garner in New York and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. And this year, Baltimore saw the police-custody death of Freddie Gray.

WNYC teamed up with public radio stations in St. Louis and Baltimore for a multi-city, many-voiced special program on race, community, and policing. What has been revealed in our divided cities over the past year? How can we learn from each other? And how can we make a plan to move forward?

Hear members of the police force, protestors, and public officials discuss the road ahead. You can also follow the ongoing conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #RadioTalksRace
