Civil Disobedience Is The American Way:
Fighting Injustice with New Forms of Peaceful Protest
From Trayvon Martin to Jordan Davis to Michael Brown to Eric Garner to DJ Henry. America has a problem. A race and gender problem. And sitting right in the bullseye are countless Black men, young and old victimized by police tactics that work against them in grand jury rulings and court house verdicts. We can no longer look the other way…Americans are finally saying ENOUGH to the senseless killings that are happening throughout the land.
Important details missing from a dispatcher’s call to police resulted in a 12 year old child being gunned down by a rookie cop in Cleveland. And a man with asthma desperately calling out “I can’t breathe” succumbed to a New York cop’s chokehold that finished his life forever.
Veteran diversity professional and former Chair of the National Black MBA Association
Bill Wells, Jr. will discuss the direction of our country as we wrestle with police brutality and its fatal impact on Black men everywhere. And we’ll also look at the groundswell of peaceful protests around the country and the world that are waking us all up the the changes needed to fix the injustices so badly derailing our nation.

A simple Facebook discussion about the aftermath of the Ferguson Grand Jury decision led me to record a quick conversation with my brother, Attorney Wilson Copeland, co-founding partner of Grier Copeland and Williams Law Firm in my native Detroit, Michigan. This seven minute interview may shed some light on the prospective of the Grand Jury process that led to Prosecutor Robert McCulloch's announcement that the Grand Jury would NOT indict Officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown Shooting of August 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri.
Prosecutor McCulloch announced the decision on Monday night November 24, 2014 at 8:00 pm Central Standard Time.
Attorney Wilson Copeland is one of the top lawyers in the state of Michigan and is a graduate of Fisk University and Vanderbilt Law School. He has practiced law in Michigan for more than 40 years. He was also inducted in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers some years ago. He and his wife, Deborah, have been married for more than 40 years and have one daughter, Lauren. Attorney Copeland is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and he is a Guardsman. He is also a lifetime member of St. Paul AME Church and serves on the Trustee Board.
To me...he's my big brother who makes me very proud every day.
