Leading scholar speaks at Flagler College

elijahElijah Anderson, a leading ethnologist, spoke at Flagler College on Nov. 7, 2013. He compared the cases of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy murdered in 1955, and Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012.
Anderson, a professor at Yale University, said the mistaken idea that all blacks come from crime-ridden ghettos helps fuel prejudice and discrimination against people of color.
He spoke at Flagler College as part of the college’s Ideas & Images program. See part 1  and part 2 of Anderson’s presentation.
