Immediate Help Needed

Hi All,

I live in Ferguson, MO and teach at Villa Duchesne.  I have a mostly upper class, white student population but we have made some advances recruiting African American students.  How would you teach about the shooting of Michael Brown and the corresponding social injustices that underly this horrible situation without putting spotlight on or alienating the African American students?  All help or resources appreciated!!!!!!  My principal doesn't want me to go right into it this week (we start tomorrow) but I want to address it soon.

Thanks and send prayers to Ferguson!
