Ferguson Town Hall

On Wednesday, December 3, 2014 the African American Studies Department at the University of Maryland, College Park will host a talk and panel discussion for “Ferguson Town Hall.”

The tragic shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent decision by the grand jury to not indict Ferguson, MO., police officer Darren Wilson has many wondering where do we go from here. The African American Studies Department invites the university community to speak out and be heard on these important issues, and to be a part of a plan for social change.

AASD will be joined by colleagues from: MLAW Programs (MLAW), Critical Race Initiative, UMD Social Justice Coalition, UMD Police Dept.(Chief Mitchell) & the Baha’i Chair.

The forum will be held in the Atrium, Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park, MD from 6:30pm-8:30pm. This event is free and open to the general public.
