Ferguson is a majority black city whose police force is 94% white. Luka talks about their experience of conversation with and struggle alongside of folks from a personal more than political standpoint, across racial lines. Luka gives a narrative of the days between the shooting of Mike Mike through Friday evening (08/15/14), when we spoke. There's discussion of police and protest tactics and how they've changed in the face of a week of gassing and rubber bullets met with molotovs and rocks."
The Taylor Report as aired 18 Aug. 2014, from Toronto, Canada community radio: "We are joined by Norman Otis Richmond, veteran of the struggle against racism on this continent. ... Richmond reminds us that Missouri had a long history of legal segregation.
