“Even under the normal circumstances of grief, five years is hardly enough time to heal. And when the subject of that grief is Michael Brown, whose death in a 2014 police shooting in Ferguson sparked protests and a national reckoning with policing policies, five years hardly feels like any time at all.

But in this weekend's fifth-anniversary events, the memorial organized by Chosen for Change, the non-profit founded by Brown's father, set out to bring the perspective down to earth, to "humanize" Brown as he was in life, as a high school graduate, brother, son and cousin. As "Mike Mike."

During a ceremony on Friday, Brown's family gathered along the patch of pavement where the unarmed eighteen-year-old was shot and left on the ground for four hours on August 9, 2014. The section of road was removed and replaced in 2015. But the family's pain remains fresh.”
