The Maryland Historical Society is launching a website containing thousands of images documenting last year’s unrest in Baltimore stemming from the death of Freddie Gray.

The society announced the launch of the website, baltimoreuprising2015.org , on Thursday. It’s a searchable database of photographs, video, audio segments, oral histories and documents about the unrest last April and its aftermath.

The society says in a statement that it received more than 12,000 submissions, including cellphone images and intergovernmental emails. The project is still accepting material.

Digital Projects Coordinator Joe Tropea says cellphone photography and social media made it possible for more people than ever to record and preserve these historic events for future generations.

A video installation of the images will open at the society’s Baltimore headquarters in late June.
