August 9, 2018 is the four-year anniversary of the unrest and rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, after 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed in a struggle with then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
A tiny percentage of the world had heard of Ferguson, Missouri until that day. The whole world soon knew about this small St. Louis suburban city.
Paul Brown grew up in Ferguson. He saw the rioting first-hand. Paul is a news writer and reporter, having worked in television, radio and newspaper journalism for 38 years.
Yours truly lived and worked four miles from the Ground Zero rioting. I worked as a self-storage facility manager and many of my customers lived down the block from where Brown was shot and saw businesses they frequented damaged by rioters.
Together, Paul and I revisit Ferguson four years later. We hope you enjoy the interview, and ask you to listen to the interview I conducted with Nick Kasoff, a current Ferguson resident and businessman.
