Yesterday, (August 8th) on the the anniversary of Mike Brown’s death, a peaceful protest made its way through the streets of Ferguson, Mo. The march was led by Brown’s father, Mike Brown Sr., to honor his son who was killed by a police officer last year. The protest was peaceful on all accounts, children played and officers handed out popsicles to the protestors to keep them cool.

Just about 100 people attended the march, which traveled from Canfield Green Apartments, where Brown was shot, to Normandy High School, his alma mater where he graduated from just days before his death.

The protest began with a prayer at the memorial site for Mike Brown. Following the prayer, the group walked five miles to the school to the sounds of Da Warehouse Warriors Youth Marching Machine. Mike Brown Sr. has been organizing events such as this march since his son’s death though the family’s non-profit organization. He honored his son throughout the weekend, starting with a feed the homeless event on Friday and a silent walk on Sunday.
