Ferguson: Race and Justice in the US - a film followed by community discussion
Recent events have sparked protests, debate, and questions about the equality of justice when it comes to race in the United States. The film, Ferguson: Race and Justice in the US, will be used as a starting point for a discussion facilitated by Michael Bell, co founder, president and CEO of InPartnership Consulting Inc.
This film and discussion kicks off a series of events fostering discussion about policing, prisons and racial justice. For info check the Oakland Public Library events page or blog (after Feb 20): www.oaklandlibrary.org/blogs/reference-services
