Beyond the Headlines of the Ferguson Story

This week on the "The Laura Flanders Show" we talk about making movies about systems, not gunshots with one of the directors of the documentary "Whose Streets?" As the news cameras left Ferguson, Missouri, after the police killing of Michael Brown, Sabaah Folayan and her team stayed on to document what happens to people subjected to police violence as a matter of routine.

Self-Governance - The Southern Movements Way

This week the "Laura Flanders Show" visits Whitakers, North Carolina, and the annual gathering of the Southern Movement Assemblies, a living experiment in popular democracy and local self-governance.
