Fordham students voice anger over police deaths

A group of Fordham University students are voicing their frustrations over recent police shooting deaths by turning their anger into art. 



Students took turns rapping or reading poems as part of the final project for their "rock and roll to hip hop" class. 



The topic was life and social injustice, with the deaths of Staten Island dad Eric Garner and Missouri teen Michael Brown taking center stage. 



Professor Mark Naison says the world needs to be listening and have real conversations with young people about racial injustice.
