Posted by wlpo on August 24, 2014

President Barack Obama is sending 3 White House officials to the funeral service of the Missouri teenager whose death from a police shooting has sparked days of racially-charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.   Leading the group for Monday’s service will be the chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, Broderick Johnson.

My Brother’s Keeper is an Obama initiative that aims to empower young minorities.
