Killings by Police Black Greeks

This combination of undated photos provided by the Brown family and the Garner family via the National Action Network shows Michael Brown, left, the black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. in August 2014, and Eric Garner, who died after a white police officer had him in a chokehold in the Staten Island borough of New York in July 2014. Recent protests against the police killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown have created a conundrum for the nation’s black fraternities and sororities: to remain relevant in the black community they need to be involved, but protect their reputations if demonstrations go awry.
