Ferguson: Community Voices - 6 Aug 2015 
On August 9, 2014 a white police officer shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown dead in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. A year later Reuters photographer Adrees Latif returned to Ferguson, where he has documented events in the past year, to capture the portraits of local residents and canvass their views.

When asked how Michael Brown's death affected his life, Harry said, "Personally it did not affect me, but emotionally it was a major event. I felt sorry for what happened to the young man. I felt bad what my community and what the city went through. The chaos disrupted and is still causing disruption [in the community]. It was tragic." When asked what changes he has seen in his community over the past year, Harry said, "The community drew together and became closer. There is still a lot of work to be done between the community and city government. You can talk about change but until it is put into practice it's just words." REUTERS/Adrees Latif

My husband was freaking so we left for two days in November. We didn't take walks for a while. I didn't feel like my safety was threatened. The violence was aimed towards police." When asked what changes she has seen in her community over the past year, Hall said, "There is a bigger sense of community." REUTERS/Adrees Latif

When asked how Michael Brown's death affected his life, Pierson said, "After Michael Brown's death, our church was so close to the community, people discovered it and wanted to meet here. That affected us dramatically because people came here to hold meetings and use the church as a place of refuge. It cost us greatly but we were proud to help." When asked what changes he has seen in his community over the past year, Pierson said, "More people are voting. More African American citizens of the community got involved and were elected to city offices, which I hope achieves positive change. No citizen deserves to be treated like a second class citizen no matter if you're the majority or minority. REUTERS/Adrees Latif

Chocolate, 36, an activist who wants to be identified by only her nickname, waves an American flag upside down while posing for a portrait in Ferguson, Missouri July 24, 2015. When asked how Michael Brown's death affected her life, Chocolate said, "My life won't ever be the same. It has changed me to become an activist and protester. It has made me to get more involved with my community and especially with youth. When you ask a kid these days what they want to be when they grow up, their answer is "I want to be alive." When asked what changes she has seen in her community over the past year, Chocolate said, "We are all still trying to heal. There are still a lot of racist cops here. We can do what we do which is stand up for justice. No one has accepted what happened out here. There is still a disconnect with the police and the community." The message on the flag reads: Hands up, don't shoot. Lost voices. Mike Brown means we got to fight back! REUTERS/Adrees Latif

It has made me more depressed and angry at the world. It has made me grow hatred towards the law enforcement and judicial system." When asked what changes he has seen in his community over the past year, Lowkey said, "There have been multiple changes. Gangs have stopped being violent. Kids walk around more joyfully. There is a sense of peacefulness and safety because the police are more aware of their actions." REUTERS/Adrees Latif

When asked what changes she has seen in her community over the past year, Guthrie said, "The community has become more close knit. People have become tighter as family, fight the cause and prove to the media what they put on television [about Ferguson] is wrong. Despite everything that happened, I still wouldn't move because I love this community. It is a great community to live in." REUTERS/Adrees Latif

The destruction and hate was all driven by politics."

When asked how Michael Brown's death affected her life, Rockamann said, "It forced us to have a difficult and important conversation. It also illuminated the need to have more citizen oversight and involvement in our government, as well as the need for public officials and police officers to really get to know the communities they're governing or policing." When asked what changes she has seen in her community over the past year, Rockamann said, "Overall I think the biggest change is that our community is awake now. Not everyone agrees on the path to be taken, and some folks would probably prefer to go back to sleep, but by and large I think most of us [Ferguson residents] are wanting to show the world the positive change that can come about when citizens wake-up, dig-in, and get to work on some of the biggest issues and opportunities of our time."
