Black Lives Matter Disrupting Political Protests

Hosted by

When 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, the Black Lives Matter movement spread on social media. In recent weeks, there have been protests and interruptions at political events with protesters chastising presidential candidates for not addressing the issue of racial injustice and institutional reform. And the candidates have struggled with how to respond.Charles McKinney
