Can you believe that today marks the 2nd anniversary of the death of Michael Brown! #BeautyShopTalk is the second anniversary of his passing will be marked with silence and service!
As you recall, two years ago today, Brown’s life was cut short at the age of 18, when the unarmed teen was shot by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9th, 2014. A grand jury as well as the U.S. Justice Department determined that no charges should be filed against Wilson, who later resigned.
Brown’s death also was the start of the Black Lives Matter movement which also led to months of protests in Ferguson! There will be several events planned like a memorial service and a moment of silence on the Ferguson street where he died.
