The Ferguson Moment called on ordinary people to take action by utilizing whatever tools were within their reach to make a difference.
Ferguson produced a set of unlikely champions, folks who would never see themselves in this light and people whose experiences did not make the broad brush stroke. These stories prove anyone can use whatever means are at their disposal to make an impact.
Although these voices are powerful and their contributions meaningful, in many ways, they’re not remarkable--these residents of Ferguson are librarians, pastors, artists, mothers, students. They are like us. But those who acted, set themselves apart by virtue of what they did, by overcoming fears or challenges to do the right thing. And it came, as courage does, with a cost.
