Professors in St. Louis are revising class curriculums to integrate “sensitive issues of race and policing” that have surfaced since the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
The 18-year-old was laid to rest Monday, initiating student discussions about issues of racial profiling, use of force, and tensions exacerbated by economic disparities.
Criminal Justice and Sociology professors claim their new curriculums put a face on their case studies, whereas professors working in other departments had to grapple with issues of relevance but found a way to “prompt calls for change.” [...]
Clarissa Rile Hayward teaches “Power, Justice, and the City” and “History of Political Thought II: Legitimacy, Equality, and the Social Contract” at Washington University in St. Louis.

Cindy Epperson is a professor teaching “Introduction to Sociology” and “Crime and Society” at St. Louis College at Meramec, and is also Ferguson into her classes.

“Most of the looters shown in the media were black, so people who believe this is what black people do [and] are going to say, ‘see I told you so.’”
