Dancing, Roses, & Tributes: The Ferguson Protests Had Another Side
Yes, there's been looting, violence, and heavily armed police on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, over the last two weeks — but there's been much more to the protests than that.
Music, family, and dancing have all played a part in the protests. Many families have brought children, and protesters have placed roses around the conflict site. The place where Michael Brown died has been turned into a makeshift memorial. And while it's certainly true that police have been an armed, omnipresent force, there's much more to the protests than their role in it.
