Join us for a poignant conversation about race, police brutality, violence and activism with Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Michael Brown, Sr. and Shaun King. They invite us to hear the way the “personal is political” by providing personal testimony to the way racism has impacted a family as well as a growing national movement.
Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation and Professor in the Department of African American Students at Princeton University. Michael Brown, Sr. is the father of Michael Brown, the slain Missouri teenager who was killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson following an altercation at a convenience store in the suburban St. Louis city in August 2014. Shaun King has written extensively about the Black Lives Matter movement, covering discrimination, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and social justice in the wake of violence in New York, Baltimore, Cleveland, Ferguson, Missouri, Charleston, South Carolina, and other cities. He is Senior Justice Writer at the New York Daily News
