The Eric Garner Verdict: Analyses, Implications and What Comes Next – YouTube | #OYRchallenge

There has been a stiffening silence in African American homes of late. There is no language to bridge anguish, fear, and cognitive dissonance into language appropriate to educate, parent, and resolve going out the next day into the mirage of Americanism.  We avert our gaze when mistakenly another broadcast of protesters flicker across our television sets. Teacher’s College hopes to teach us to exhale through this silence. The panel assembled expressed the need to provide breathing space for race dialogue. Watch the video. #ICantBreathe #BlackLivesMatter

Streamed live on Dec 11, 2014
