More than 1,000 people from all over the country joined together on Canfield Drive this weekend to march, like civil rights protesters before them, against police brutality in Ferguson and around the country.
The crowd invoked the spirit of Selma and sang out with chants as it marched to the Ferguson Police station, letting loose three weeks-worth of anger, sadness and frustration caused by the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed eighteen-year-old whose death ignited weeks of sometimes-violent clashes with police here.
At the heart of the march stood Brown's parents, father Michael Brown, Sr. and mother Lesley McSpadden, once again joining the supporters rallying around Brown's death to bring change and justice to Ferguson.
