Ferguson: Three Minutes that Changed America by The Washington Post & Wesley Lowery

From the Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post comes a meticulously detailed, insightful report on the killing that brought the nation's attention to a city coming apart at the seams.

12:00PM: Officer Darren Wilson turns his Chevy Tahoe police cruiser left on Canfield Drive.
12:01PM: Wilson orders two young men, Dorian Johnson and Michael Brown, to get out of the street.
12:04PM: Michael Brown lays dying from bullet wounds.

Three minutes in middle America shook a nation to its foundation. To many, it shone a spotlight on the frequently violent, often deadly interactions between young men of color and police departments. It highlighted the racial disparity in policing techniques, in response to crime, and in how race relations are perceived in an America where many incorrectly pride the country on being "post-racial."

Renowned journalist Wesley Lowery has pulled together a vast and troubling panorama of reportage on the Ferguson slaying, and the aftermath--the marches, the clashes, and the slow, painful process of building trust between a devastated community and a police department tasked with serving and protecting it.

Challenging and necessary, Ferguson engages America in a frank and necessary dialogue about race relations, about legacies of bigotry that continue to this day, and about a path forward as one nation, equal under the law.
