Whose Streets? plus Q & A and Reception
Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. Please join us afterwards for a discussion and Q & A with Lauren Braun-Strumfels and Brandyn Heppard. Lobby reception to follow with light snacks included.
Lauren Braun-Strumfels, Ph.D., is a historian specializing in immigration and labor. She is currently on the faculty at Raritan Valley Community College, where she teaches courses in U.S. and women’s history.
Brandyn Heppard is a Phd candidate at the New School for Social Research. He is an assistant professor of Philosophy at RVCC, as well as the co-director of RVCC’s Women’s Center. He was recently selected as a NJ Public Scholar by the NJ Council for the humanities.
