A St. Louis couple comes to Ferguson, MO, six weeks after unarmed teen Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer. The memorial for Michael Brown was destroyed by a fire and then rebuilt by the community with handmade signs, balloons, stuffed animals, and a line of roses down the middle of Canfield Drive.
Larry and Erica go to see the rebuilt memorial and pay their respects to Michael Brown, his grieving parents, and the Ferguson community. For Erica, despite the unrest sparked by the fatal shooting, this tragic event has been an opportunity for the largely segregated St. Louis area to connect. "I like the fact that I've seen people of all races come together for Ferguson," Erica says.
This is part of a short film series, Ferguson Conversations.
