Forward Through Ferguson: Community Roundtable Discussion

Just over a year ago, the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, upended the national conversation about race and justice in America. In St. Louis, that conversation continues. As The Takeaway broadcasts from St. Louis Public Radio, community members and a live studio audience explain what has and hasn't changed in their corner of the world since Brown's death. Guests include Felicia Pulliam, a member of the Ferguson Commission; Rev. Osagyefo Sekou, a pastor, author, theologian, and organizer in St. Louis; and Amy Hunter, director of racial justice for the Greater St. Louis YWCA.
