Documenting Ferguson is a digital repository created 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.
Documenting Ferguson is a partnership of the Washington University Libraries and St. Louis-area universities and organizations.
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 in Ferguson and the surrounding St. Louis County and St Louis City.
Contributed content is subject to an evaluation process; materials containing unrelated or incriminating content will not be accepted. Accepted materials will be publicly available on the Documenting Ferguson website.
