For two months, Ferguson, Missouri, and the killing there of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer, has been a national and international story.
 
The death of Brown has driven the conversation on numerous topics: police misconduct, the right to protest, the media depiction of black men, and racial disparities in economic and political power.
 
On Tuesday, the Maynard Institute will host a chat with Gilbert Bailon, editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about how he and his staff covered these events in that nearby suburb, what they’ve learned, and coverage going forward.
