Post-Racial Mythologies, Post-Ferguson Realities: the Past, Present, and Future of Policing and Black Communities”
Location:Schomburg Center for Research on Black Culture - NY Public Library-Langston Hughes Auditorium New York, NY
Unfortunately, the August 9, 2014, the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, was not an isolated incident. Nor will the issues it raises be resolved anytime soon, if the problems of policing and police practices continue as they are today.
Join faculty, students, and affiliates of the Columbia University - Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS) in a contextual discussion of black communities, policing, and youth in the United States.
