FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – It’s been a year since a St. Louis County Grand Jury didn’t return an indictment against Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. In that time, a year of healing has afforded artists to mark the grand jury decision.
They’re doing it by painting messages of hope and peace in Ferguson.
It`s an extension of the Paint for Peace STL movement that started last year after the riots following the grand jury decision.
During that initial movement, many people painted hopeful messages on boards that were covering so many windows.
Many of those windows were smashed during the unrest.
The organizer says anyone is welcomed to come paint.
We`re told the painting will continue tomorrow, and then on Saturday and Sunday.
People can meet outside Cathy`s Kitchen for more information.
