Saturday’s National March on Ferguson was largest daytime protest in Ferguson, Missouri since Michael Brown was shot.
McKendree University sociologist S.J. Creek was there. The video (just a couple of minutes) features some of her interviews with clergy and faith activists. It’s a unique look into what the protests are like on the ground. It was a hot, muggy–and even rainy–day. The protests were organized. Protestors held orange signs distributed by members of the Nation of Islam and followed a route that included the Canfield Green Apartments (to the very place where Michael Brown was shot and killed) and the Ferguson police station. S.J. gives a fresh look on the events from within the protests.
