A year after Michael Brown's death, Ferguson and the issues raised there continue to resonate in St. Louis and elsewhere. This week from our newsroom you’ll hear voices reflecting on the past year, meet artists and musicians transformed, see images of profound moments in history and get acquainted with the experiences of your neighbors. Join us on-air and follow our stories here in our news section.

Today during All Things Considered Jamell Spann and Elizabeth Vega discussed the Michael Brown shooting and that photographic moment that brought them together. Their story was told to StoryCorps during their visit in 2014. This piece was produced locally by St. Louis Public Radio.

On Monday, August 10,  St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh will talk with a number of community leaders to examine what has and hasn't changed in the region in the year since Michael Brown's death in Ferguson.
