Reader’s Corner: #FergusonReads

warriorcop1There’s been some attempts to grapple with the deeper impact of what’s been happening in Ferguson—not to mention what will continue to happen in the St. Louis for months and years after the national media’s attention has turned away.

While small in focus, this book discussion group seems just about the perfect way to talk about the dangerously deep gulfs in an ever-more segregated America. According to #FerugsonReads:

This reading group is an attempt to add some civility and context to the mix by exploring race, not only in St. Louis, but America as a whole.

November’s book was Radley Balko’s Rise of the Warrior Cop; chosen for obvious reasons. January’s will be Lisa Bloom’s Suspicion Nation, on how the Trayvon Martin tragedy will continue to be repeated.
