FERGUSON VOICES: DISRUPTING THE FRAME
“Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame” is a website, national traveling photo/audio exhibit, and podcast produced as part of The Moral Courage Project, a partnership between the University of Dayton’s Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice.
Our team set out to ferguson, missouri the summer of 2016 to understand what happened in the 100 days that followed the shooting of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014. What we discovered, by immersing ourselves in the community and through listening to the people who witnessed and shaped the events, complicated the binary narrative of Ferguson as black versus white or protestor versus police. This is our attempt to do justice to the experiences people shared with us and lift up the moments, choices, and actions taken by ordinary people in the Ferguson community.
