It's only a brief moment of clarity. I miss you mama, even though you are here with me. I've had moments of grief--forever grieving little losses every day.

This timely book addresses the deeply rooted perception of inequality and injustices experienced in Ferguson,  with a keen focus on the legal and social reverberations following the death of Michael Brown.

Ferguson's Fault Lines  also examines other important topics of debate such as:

  • The framing of the issues by the media in black versus white
  • The policing of black and poor communities by law enforcement officers
  • Poverty
  • Looting
  • Rioting and the color and face of crime as portrayed in the media
  • The identity of the black male narrative, and
  • The relevance of black life and whether and how it matters.
