College of Liberal Arts & Sciences in the media between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2014
After the grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, a variety of protests and demonstrations have taken place in the city and around the nation. Clarence Lang, associate professor of African and African-American studies, offers insight and historical context for the protests.
“When Black people have struggled for freedom, citizenship, it has taken multiple forms: lobbying, political activity, exercising the vote, civil disobedience—and also open rebellion, which is what we’re seeing now. The idea that there’s only one form that Black politics and political action can take does not square with the history of struggle,” said Lang.
