Emory University says it will offer a course this coming fall on the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
The university says the class will be titled “The Ferguson Movement: Power, Politics and Protest.”
“Ferguson touches a lot of different areas,” says Dorothy Brown, a law professor at Emory who helped create the class. “So people tend to think of it as policing and criminal law, but there’s so much more to it.”
Brown says the course will explore topics like police tactics, media, voting rights, health issues and tax policy.
