Ferguson and Civil Liberties

By April 28, 2015Academic, General

On April 16, 2015, I was at the Race Center at the University of Chicago on a panel titled:
‘Ferguson and Civil Liberties: A Response to the Department of Justice Investigation into the Ferguson, MO Police Department and Chicago Police Torture Cases’

I presented some initial thoughts on a project I am working on currently called ‘Law & Demons’ which examines how a racial logic based on lynching continues to influence the operation of so-called justice in the United States.
