Basic Black Special: Race and Ferguson Beyond The Headlines

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

Original broadcast date: August 21, 2014

It's been almost two weeks since 18 year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson, but the reverberations from police and protestors surrounding his death continue.   Brown's death was the fourth this summer in as many weeks in which an African American man was killed by law enforcement.  In a special conversation this week, Basic Black goes beyond the headlines to explore the racial, historical, and cultural underpinnings of the relationship of law enforcement to communities of color and the meaning of protest in a post-civil rights movement era.

 

PLEASE NOTE: THE LIVE CHAT FOR THIS SHOW OCCURRED WITH THE ORIGINAL BROADCAST. THE VIDEO OF THIS SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE WEB AT 8:00PM (EDT)

Basic Black: From Montgomery to Ferguson...

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

December 5, 2014

December 1st marked the 59th anniversary of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger, setting in motion the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the emerging modern civil rights movement.  We observe this anniversary amidst a wave of protests: online, on the streets, and in the marketplace… actions in response to the deaths of several African American men and boys at the hands of law enforcement. This week on Basic Black, we consider the changing face and force of future social justice movements.
