The Ferguson Project

The issues that have come to the fore since Aug. 9, 2014, when Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson killed 18-year-old Michael Brown have been developing for decades. What actually happened on Canfield Drive will continue to be discussed, but attention is increasingly focused on community-police relations, racial profiling and racial and economic disparities and more.
