Ferguson | Contexts & Consequences

This guide is an ongoing collaborative project. Ferguson has become a movement and a movement is never about just one or two individuals. This guide builds on the work of librarians and others all over the country who are working to shift the focus of Ferguson to the structural racism that exists here in our community and across the nation. Only by understanding the underlying systems and institutions can we hope to move toward meaningful and lasting social change.
