This guide is meant to serve as a starting point for students, faculty, and staff to better understand the killings of unarmed black people by police since Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, MO in 2014, and the subsequent protests and unrest that spread from Ferguson to New York City and across the United States. It also offers resources that may be used by Marymount California University faculty to teach Ferguson and related topics in their courses. We will try to keep this guide as up-to-date as we can.
We welcome additions to this research guide. Please email your librarian or firstname.lastname@example.org
Born out of a social media post, the Black Lives Matter movement has sparked discussion about race and inequality across the world. In this spirited conversation with Mia Birdsong, the movement's three founders share what they've learned about leadership and what provides them with hope and inspiration in the face of painful realities. Their advice on how to participate in ensuring freedom for everybody: join something, start something and "sharpen each other, so that we all can rise."
