#FergusonSyllabus: Talking and Teaching About Police Violence

The blog Prison Culture has curated this amazing resource, #FergusonSyllabus, a post that brings together all the best teaching materials about the shooting of Mike Brown and the injustices that are faced by peaceful protesters in Ferguson. The post also includes resources to facilitate popular education around police violence and the prison industrial complex from Project NIA (No Youth in Prison), Buzzfeed, Chain Reaction and many more. The syllabus includes graphics, comics, zines, introduction activities, videos, worksheets and additional materials to help teach the inherent racism within policing as an institution.
