“We really need an investigation, not only of the death of Michael Brown but also of the treatment of peaceful protesters following the shooting,“ Margaret Huang summarized in an interview with “St. Louis on the Air” host Don Marsh.
Margaret Huang is the deputy executive director of campaigns and programs at Amnesty International USA. Marva Robinson was in studio as well. She is the president of the St. Louis Chapter of The Association of Black Psychologists and licensed clinical psychologist at Preston & Associates Psychology Firm LLC.
The panelists of "Ferguson: Where Do We Go From Here?" at the Amnesty International Midwest Conference: Ferguson Township Democratic Committeewoman Patricia Bynes, St. Louis Association of Black Psychologist President Marva Robinson, SLU Law professor Brendan Roediger, Tef Poe, Maalik Shakoor and Jarris Williams.
To many on the ground in Ferguson, calls to action have evolved into a movement over the past two months. A panel of local organizers discussed what shape that movement should take Sunday at Amnesty International’s Midwest Conference.
The six panelists represented a range of experience—from the political to the legal and psychological—but they all had one thing in common: a desire for change in the wake of the death of Michael Brown.
For Hands Up United activist and rapper Tef Poe, that means organizing – while leaving space for differences of opinion.
