My local PBS station decided to show this excellent documentary in response to what's going on in Ferguson right now. As someone who's never lived in that part of the country I found it to be helpful for me to understand better how we got to what's happening today. As a fave teacher of mine pointed out, the past is never past, it has ways of reaching forward and touching the future. You can find out more about the documentary on their website.

Here's the trailer:

Because i'm still fighting this cold i won't be able to make any of the protests, but know that i'm following the posts and the news. I do plan to contact my representatives as soon as I can get back on my regular meds and can focus better.
