The recent shooting death of Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri, sparked renewed national discussions about racial tensions, police actions and more. NPR’s Michel Martin moderates a much needed and serious conversation with community leaders. The audience also participates in the discussion.  Join St. Louis Public Radio and community leaders for a conversation recorded live on August 28 about race, law enforcement and more in the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown.  Panelists include:

  • Daniel Isom, retired St. Louis police chief and current professor of policing and the community at UMSL.
  • Rita Days, former Missouri state senator and current Democratic director of the St. Louis County Election Board.
  • The Rev. Willis Johnson, pastor of Wellspring Church, Ferguson.
  • James Knowles, mayor of Ferguson.
  • Kimberly McKinney, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis.

WITF presents this conversation to you Friday September 5 8:00pm-10:00pm on 89.5 & 93.3.  This replaces the Friday broadcast of OnPoint.
