Documenting Ferguson is a digital
repository that seeks to preserve and make
accessible community- and media-generated,
original content that was captured and created
following the killing of 18-year-old, Michael Brown
by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson,
Missouri on August 9, 2014. A freely available
resource for students, scholars, teachers, and the
greater community, Documenting Ferguson has the
ultimate goal of providing diverse perspectives of
the events surrounding the conflicts in Ferguson.
Community participants and media representatives
are invited to contribute original digital content,
such as images, video, audio, and stories related
to memorials, community meetings, rallies, and
protests occurring in Ferguson and the surrounding
St. Louis County and City.
A partnership between Washington University and
St. Louis-area universities and organizations, contributed content is publicly available and is subject to an
evaluation process. Materials containing unrelated or incriminating content will not be accepted.
A report containing the project's statement of purpose and detailing processes for technical and content
development, collaborating with community organizations, and long term outcomes of the project, including
asessment, is available here.
