BALTIMORE (AP) -- Dozens of people marched Saturday in Baltimore to mark the anniversary of the death of Freddie Gray.

Sharon Black, an organizer with the Peoples Power Assembly, the group that planned the march, said the marchers don't believe anything has changed for the better in Baltimore since Gray's death. Black says "deep-seated anger" remains in the community a year later.


The 25-year-old Gray died on April 19, 2015 after his neck was broken in a police transport van. His death triggered unrest and riots across the city.

The march began near the CVS store that was badly damaged during last year's unrest. It was to end with a dinner at a park.

Six officers were charged in Gray's death. None of the cases has been resolved.
