PHILADELPHIA - Nov. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Less than one week after the Grand Jury decision in Ferguson, MO, national journalist and political commentator Dr. Marc Lamont Hill will be at Mother Bethel AME Church, located at South 6th and Lombard Streets in Philadelphia, this Sunday (11/30) for a public dialogue immediately following the 9:30am worship service. Dr. Hill just returned from Ferguson and will discuss his reaction and experiences in an informal conversation in the church's lower level. This "Basement Chat" is free and open to the public with free overflow parking.  The conversation will be led by Mother Bethel's Pastor Rev. Dr. Mark Kelly Tyler, who was in Ferguson the week after Mike Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson. Dr. Tyler has also been active in “Justice For Mike Brown” protests here in Philadelphia. “We invited Dr. Hill to speak because he’s been on the frontline in Ferguson since day one,” says Dr. Tyler. “When I went to Ferguson back in August, I ran into an exhausted Dr. Hill the morning my flight landed. He told me of things happening that seemed too hard to believe, until I had a chance to witness it for myself. Dr. Hill has an important message for us about what he’s seen and where we should go next.”
