#FergusonFridays: If it wasn’t for the Women…

Tamura A. Lomax

Abstract


Several weeks ago while in Ferguson, MO with Black Life Matters Ride, I had the honor of meeting Jameila White. After a day of protesting, some of us retreated to a community barbeque while others traveled to St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Bob McCulloch’s neighborhood to continue political demonstrations. Concerned about white fear, hostility and vigilantism, I chose being in community with the folk of Ferguson.
