Coming up Sunday, November 30 on Face the Nation

Police form a line in the street under a holiday sign after a grand jury returned no indictment in the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri November 24, 2014.


(CBS News) -- For a holiday weekend, we sure have a lot of news to cover.

This week, a St. Louis County grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed 18 year-old Michael Brown. The decision--announced by Ferguson prosecutor Robert McCulloch Monday evening--sparked unrest in Ferguson and across the country, despite efforts by the Brown Family, Governor Nixon, and even President Obama to keep the protests peaceful.

How are Michael Brown's parents responding to the grand jury's decision? Sunday, we'll sit down with the Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump. Plus, we'll talk about the state of race relations in America and what lessons can be learned in the wake of the grand jury's decision with Ta-Nehisi Coates of the Atlantic and Dr. James Peterson Director of Lehigh University.

Turning to the newly-elected Congress, we'll sit down with several key new members: Senator-Elect Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Senator-Elect Gary Peters, D-Mich., to talk about their aspirations for the new Congress. Will republicans and democrats in Washington be able to work together in the new year on issues like immigration and the economy or are we headed for more gridlock?

Plus, we have a terrific political panel lined up to make sense of this week's news. We'll sit down with John Heilemenn of Bloomberg Politics, Michael Crowley of Politico, and CBS News Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes.

Finally, on this special Thanksgiving weekend, we'll hear from Archbishop Blase Cupich, Pope Francis's first appointment in the United States. Has the Church become too politicized? We'll talk to the new Archbishop of Chicago about problems facing the Vatican, President Obama's executive order on immigration, the "Pope Francis effect" and more. Hope you'll join us.
