. . .we have Wes Moore’s Five Days: The Fiery Reckoning of an American City. While the title sounds like it could be about any number of locations during the last few months, Five Days is about life in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray, back in 2015. Moore (with assistance from Erica L. Green) charts the week through the experience of seven individuals, and this approach renders a powerful and moving portrait of how violence and injustice impact all parts of a city.
