The systematic oppression of people of African descent is woven into the fabric of the United States and its institutions. The uprising in Ferguson following the killing of Michael Brown was a pivotal moment in the ongoing movement against America’s system of policing, which is responsible for the killings of countless Black lives. Join This Week in Blackness to hear from local and national organizers in Ferguson and around the country who are working to resist, empower and build.

Check out the highlights as told by Netroots Nation attendees on social media.
