Dr. Lester Spence on Michael Brown & Ferguson

Protests in FergusonAugust 19, 2014 – Segment 2

We take another look at Ferguson, Missouri, from a couple different perspectives. My co-host for this discussion is Dr. Lester Spence, Center for Emerging Media Scholar-in-Residence and Associate Professor of Political Science and Africana Studies at Johns Hopkins University, and we hear from our listeners.

We first reflect on the result of the most recent autopsy of Michael Brown and then will explore the gap between young and old activists and consider the question: Would anyone be paying attention without this type of protest?
