DescriptionFive years after the events that led to the Ferguson, Missouri, uprising, Ferguson and Faith author Leah Gunning Francis reconnects with the faith leaders who took to the streets to protest the police shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old black man and the racially tinged events in St. Louis and across the United States. In Faith Following Ferguson, Francis finds activists realistic about the odds they face, elevating the conversation to new visibility, still committed to the cause, and emerging as leaders in their community, both in St. Louis and in new homes. For the faith community, Ferguson was transformative -- but those who stood in harm's way know there is still much work to do.
