Is This Moment A Youth Moment? We Talk With One Teen

Jonna McKone

Last Friday in her press conference on the officers' charges, Marilyn Mosby stated, "to the youth, I will seek justice on your behalf. This is a moment; this is your moment. Let's ensure that we have peaceful and constructive  rallies that will develop structural and systemic changes for generations to come."

That was Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby last Friday, wrapping up her announcement of criminal charges against the police officers involved the arrest of Freddie Gray.

A few hours later, we talked with one of the young people Mosby was calling out to. Darius Craig is a senior at Digital Harbor High School, president of the student government there and the National Honor Society.  He organized a march last Tuesday

Here's the link for the text of Darius Craig's speech on Tuesday in the Washington Post.
