Urban Policy Professor Jeff Smith has been a vocal expert in the aftermath of the death of Michael Brown, the Grand Jury decision not to indict the police officer involved in the shooting, and the tensions of racial and class inequality simmering and boiling over in St. Louis and other cities across the U.S. On December 2nd, Jeff Smith discussed his new E-book “Ferguson in Black and White”, with a brief commentary from Justyn Richardson, Treasurer of New Black School and Milano Urban Policy student. The discussion is an example of the importance of creating a space where members of The New School community and the larger New York City community can come together to speak about and better understand these issues.
