Three weeks after Ferguson officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, tensions in Ferguson remain high. As part of the National March on Ferguson on August 30, 2014, more than 1,000 people -- including Brown's father Michael Brown Sr. and mother Lesley McSpadden -- gathered near the burned-out QuikTrip on West Florissant before leading the protest march to where Brown died near the Canfield Green Apartments. After some rain, the group headed to Forestwood Park for a rally and then toward the police station, where protesters voiced frustrations to officers outside the building.

Groups in other cities held marches in solidarity with Ferguson on August 30, including in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
