In light of recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, lecturer Nila Nokizaru gave a presentation Tuesday night discussing the history and role of modern police and the riots in Ferguson.

The presentation — which Nokizaru said was written before the grand jury “failed” to indict Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager — was about the “internal dynamics of the Ferguson riots and the liberalization of the anti-police struggle,” according to the event’s Facebook page.
