How do events like the shootings of unarmed black males such as, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant and many others reflect on the status of the legal system in modern day America? How do policies like New York's "Stop & Frisk" and Florida's "Stand Your Ground" relate to the concept of a "post-racial society"?

On Tuesday, February 27th at 7pm at the College Nine and Ten Multipurpose Room, the College Ten CoCurricular Program will present Deconstructing Ferguson: A Panel Discussion on Racial Profiling, the Justice System, and Community Solutions. The panel will include Sociology Professor Hiroshi Fukurai, Community Organizer Ashley Yates, Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos Founder Nane Alejandre, and UCSC African Black Student Alliance (A/BSA) member Jocqui Smollett. The panel will be moderated by Dr. David Anthony. The event will shed light to the underlying history and current socio/economic condition that has led to massive protest throughout nation.

Let's join together as a community and engage in constructive conversations!
