Prompted by recent social unrest in Ferguson, MO, New York City and Southern California, the Rev. Dr. Cecil Murray, Tansey Chair of Christian Ethics at USC and Chairman of the Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement, discusses these latest episodes of racially charged tension in the context of historical civil rights struggles in the United States. He also touches on the role of religion as both a source of and a solution to violent conflict.
