The Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University sponsors a panel discussion on the events in Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown.
Why is a black body in motion considered a threat?
Is it appropriate to provision police forces with military equipment?
What historical forces are at work here?
Is this a moment or a movement?
What is the role of the Black Church?
of other communities of faith?
