MCHR Film: Confronting Police and Vigilante Violence

Posted October 11th, 2018  |  News

Unarmed African Americans have been shot and killed by police and white vigilantes at an alarming rate. It happened to Laquan McDonald in Chicago and it happens in Detroit and its suburbs as well. Unlike the Chicago case, guilty police officers most often are exonerated.

The brief video and speakers will address this violence and the legal and activist challenges to such violence. We also hear news stories of people taking justice in to their own hands Facilitator will be Mark Fancher, (attorney with the ACLU), Gloria House (African American elder) and De’Von Burt, representative of Black Young People 100. Moderator: Fran Shor.
