Events surrounding the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri have re-ignited conversations about racism, inequality, and increasingly militaristic policing practices in black and brown communities across the US.
This Teach-In strives to create a space for campus dialogue; provide social and historical context for these events and consider the impact of emerging and ongoing portrayals and responses.
