“Lessons from Ferguson about Rights, Race and Place” will begin at 7 p.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room in Wilson Library. The free event is sponsored by the Center for Urban and Regional Studies and the Institute of African American Research at UNC.

An interdisciplinary panel of scholars from UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University will discuss key underlying factors that led to the events in Ferguson and suggest ways to prevent similar incidents in other places, including North Carolina. Audience participation will be encouraged.
