A Request for Youth Poetry About Ferguson

In this New York Times article, read about a request (internationally!) for youth to write and share poetry in response to what happened in Ferguson, when unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by police, and the protests and violence that followed.

This project is produced by the Off/Page Project, which combines the analytical lens of The Center for Investigative Reporting with the groundbreaking storytelling of the literary nonprofit Youth Speaks. Living at the intersection of youth voice and civic engagement, the Off/Page Project provides a multimedia platform for young people to investigate the issues and stories that would otherwise be silenced.
