ferguson_anniversary_0.jpg

It’s been a year since white police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18 year-old Michael Brown following a robbery in Ferguson, Missouri. Media coverage of the  protests that followed have contributed to a new conversation and coverage about social justice. We talk with The Poynter Institute’s Kelly McBride about what’s happened in the year since we first heard about Ferguson. We air an audio clip from a short film called "This Is Home", and you can see the full (4:43) film HERE
