What Should Students Read After Ferguson?

Los Angeles Times reporter recently asked me and a couple of others which two books or essays students should read regarding race and racism in the Ferguson era.  Whittling it down to only two was almost impossible, but I managed–it was an interesting exercise.  I pared it down to James Cone’s A Black Theology of Liberation and a Harper’s Magazine interview between Cornel West and Jorge Klor de Alva.  You can read more about these two texts in the L.A. Times article that came out yesterday.
