Michael Brown’s Temporary Shrine Will Be Replaced With a Permanent Plaque

The city of Ferguson, Mo., removed on Wednesday an improvised shrine for Michael Brown and will have it replaced with a permanent plaque dedicated to the young man’s memory. The shrine emerged hours after Brown, a young Black man, was fatally shot by White police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.

It marks the spot he was killed and features stuffed animals, flowers and candles, which, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, will be stored by the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.
