  It’s been six months since the riot in Baltimore beginning in the late afternoon of April 27th, following the funeral of 25 year-old Freddie Gray. The actions from that night affected as many as 400 Baltimore City businesses. While the unrest was short lived, its impacts are still evident for businesses in places like Mondawmin Mall and Fells Point. Today on Midday, we’ll talk to two reporters who wrote about Baltimore's recovery: Sheryl Gay Stolberg of the New York Times and Colin Campbell of the Baltimore Sun; and Lance Lucas, the President of the Greater Baltimore Black Chamber of Commerce to determine the extent of the damage to the city’s businesses and reputation.
