Last year the people of Ferguson and St. Louis showed great courage by resisting police violence when they stood together after the murder of Michael Brown Jr. Since then, a wave of resistance has swept the country.
Thousands of people took to the streets, #ShutItDown and demanded that the world recognize that #BlackLivesMatter!
