Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe the movement for racial justice, WHOSE STREETS? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson Uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri.
Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy among a long history of police brutality. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, young Black community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. WHOSE STREETS? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting not just for their civil rights, but for the very right to live.
