Ferguson Conversation Continues in Athens

ATHENS, GA- The conversation surrounding the Ferguson decision that came out early last week continues today after last nights “die-in”. Students and faculty  at University of Georgia have already felt the impact of this week’s events.

Kelley Meyer, a former 8th grade teacher in Ferguson says that based on her experience teaching in Ferguson, what happened was going to happen eventually.

Today Meyer is the Study Abroad and Distance Learning Coordinator at UGA.

Conversation on this topic as well as the Ferguson case will continue tonight and tomorrow on UGA’s campus. Reporter Brittany Laryea will be live at UGA’s Rooker Hall for the National Association of Black Journalists Fireside Chat in our 5 o’clock newscast.
