Civil Disobedience Is The American Way: 

Fighting Injustice with New Forms of Peaceful Protest

From Trayvon Martin to Jordan Davis to Michael Brown to Eric Garner to DJ Henry. America has a problem.  A race and gender problem.   And sitting right in the bullseye are countless Black men, young and old victimized by police tactics that work against them in grand jury rulings and court house verdicts.  We can no longer look the other way…Americans are finally saying ENOUGH to the senseless killings that are happening throughout the land. 

Important details missing from a dispatcher’s call to police resulted in a 12 year old child being gunned down by a rookie cop in Cleveland.  And a man with asthma desperately calling out “I can’t breathe” succumbed to a New York cop’s chokehold that finished his life forever.

Veteran diversity professional and former chair of the National Black MBA Association Bill Wells will discuss the direction of our country as we wrestle with police brutality and its fatal impact on Black men everywhere.  And we’ll also look at the  groundswell of peaceful protests around the country and the world that are waking us all up the the changes needed to fix the injustices so badly derailing our nation.
