  • It's always easy to spot Anthony Shahid at a protest.

Ever watch TV footage or a livestream of a Ferguson protest and wonder, "Wait, who is the guy with the chains and stuffed dogs?"

Allow us to introduce you. He's Anthony Shahid, a leading St. Louis-area civil-rights activist and a regular face at the protests spurred by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

In this video, Shahid explains each of the symbols he wears -- the chains, the nooses, the dogs, the police badge -- and shares what he's doing to fight for the black community.
