The Huffington Post today announced a series of coverage from Ferguson, but different than what’s made headlines in the nearly two weeks since the shooting death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.
“Ferguson: The Untold Story” highlights the inspiring acts of kindness and generosity in the St. Louis suburb.
Arianna Huffington, chair, president, and editor-in-chief of HuffPost, writes in a post introducing the series, “Endlessly rerunning protests getting out of hand, looting, tear-gassing and arrests is not giving viewers a full picture of what is happening in the community at large…This untold story is one of compassion, ingenuity, kindness, trust, collaboration and community — of the many who have reached out to help those caught in middle of the conflict, whether children who couldn’t go to school or strangers without a place to stay.”
Already, 20 articles and HuffPost live interviews are a part of the collection, from people protecting stores against looters to persons donating food to needy families and free activities for children. Check out the full series, here.
