    The Street Memorial for Michael Brown


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CarolineCA visited Ferguson, Missouri, on August 19, to see firsthand the protesting over the death of teenager Michael Brown. During her travels, she saw protesting early in the evening on West Florissant Avenue. She put together a slideshow with a compilation of photos that she took around the town. The audio features a protester she came across while documenting Ferguson. The woman can be heard in the video chatting a call to action.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    This is the place where Michael Brown was killed. A woman shouted to those who passed by. Children, whose faces are obscured in these photos, drew chalk drawings on the sidewalk. Teens and young adults stood and stared. Two people actually took photos of themselves in front of the memorial.

    Please note, when the woman shouts "Don't back up" she's not talking about traffic passing by. She's referring to the history of civil rights.
