St. Louis, Missouri
This iReport is part of an assignment:
Black Lives Matter protests (2014)
Humans of St. Louis
With the news centered on the death of teen Michael Brown and the violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, Drew and Fish wanted to show a side of St. Louis that they’ve been capturing since they started in May. They hope that featuring “microstories” like these portraits paired with interviews will not only show a slice of life there, but promote “inclusiveness and conversation” in the city, said Drew.
Photo 1 shows protesters lining the streets of Ferguson on August 14, while the second image shows a family in The Grove neighborhood of St. Louis on July 29.
