Dr. Alan Singer Covers Forum on Policing in America

In his latest Huffington Blog post, Professor of Education Alan Singer writes about his experience serving on a panel at Uniondale High School on “Policing in America: Should Uniondale Care about Ferguson?” Dr. Singer writes, “The student population at Uniondale High School is almost 100% Black and Latino, and as it became clear at the forum, students felt the death by police of Michael Brown, an eighteen-year Black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, on a very personal level.” The forum was organized by social studies teacher Adeola Tella-Williams, a Hofstra alumna.

Dr. Singer said of the Uniondale students and teachers, “This was an outstanding example of young people becoming activists, raising questions with adults, searching for answers, and sharing their ideas with a broader audience.”

The forum was also covered by Newsday.
