Reporters at St. Louis Public Radio interviewed more than 20 people for this project. Some spoke to us alone, others alongside friends and family. All were directly touched by the inequalities that #Ferguson’s eruption showcased to the world. Several themes emerged during the interviews. Those themes became the chapters of this project.

Our goal was to allow the people we interviewed to speak for themselves, giving their thoughts, observations, fears and hopes with minimal editing or interjections. We thank them for their time, honesty and trust.

To support work like this at St. Louis Public Radio:

More Reflections

Seven chapters weren’t enough. Rather than cut reflections that didn’t fit neatly into our chapter themes, we created this extra chapter that, we feel, is well worth a listen.
