Michael Brown Shooting and the Ferguson Protests

Missions

Start with your own questions, then deepen your inquiry into Michael Brown's shooting, and the protests and confrontations in Ferguson by choosing from these 23 articles, songs, interviews, photographs, blog posts, podcasts, reviews, videos, and academic reports.

How can we not have Michael Brown's shooting and the protests and confrontations in Ferguson in our curriculum? Trust and hope are essential building blocks in learning, and these have been been eroded this summer. Or, perhaps Ferguson just ripped open the wounds that come with each new name on the list: Eric Garner, John Crawford, Renisha McBride, Jordan Davis, Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant... We need to work to heal these wounds and to re-build trust and hope with our students.
