The Story of Ferguson and Michael Brown, Told By 5 Young Women Who Knew Him

Over the course of 1 hot summer month in St. Louis, Missouri, The Babel Project had the honor of running a media activism workshop with 5 incredible youth protesters to produce a film that told a story of Ferguson and Mike Brown Junior from their perspectives.

We worked together every single day, honing our skills as storytellers, and taking control of the narrative – a narrative too often used to discredit victims of police brutality and the protesters that stand up for their community. A narrative that too often excludes the voices of young people.
