Missouri History Museum says
Using a socio-historical perspective, Dr. Andrea S. Boyles explains the emergence of civil unrest in places like Ferguson, Missouri, by linking contemporary tensions between black citizens and suburban police to the history of slave patrols, race codes, and sundown towns in her book, "Race, Place, and Suburban Policing: Too Close for Comfort."

Join us as Dr. Boyles draws from local, pre-Ferguson cases, such as Kevin Johnson and Charles “Cookie” Thornton and the tragedy of the Kirkwood City Council mass shooting, to discuss the persistence of fraught black citizen–police interfaces.
The book will be available for purchase in the Missouri History Museum Shop.
