Ferguson Freedom Fighters was an interactive story-telling event created after I returned from Ferguson, MO in 2014.
The storytelling event was propelled by audience questions. Each story focused on moments unseen by the media cameras: the local organizing that supported an uprising, an off-the-map town thrust into the national spotlight, the depth of the police state, and the relationships and growth that emerged after Michael Brown's murder. This piece debuted at the University City Arts League and was restaged at Haverford College.
The initial event included an art installation by Laura Mecklenburger titled Bind the Police. Visit Laura's Flicker Page to see photos of the installation.
