The Maryland Historical Society has unveiled a new website that features photographs, videos and oral histories from the recent civil unrest in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray.

The website, www.baltimoreuprising2015.org, is a collaborative effort between the historical society and faculty from the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland Baltimore County.

The aim of the website, according to a news release, is to encourage people to "participate in recording and preserving history as it unfolds."

The site will also have a feature that allows people to contribute digital material to the trove electronically.
