Is Ferguson in America?

Image made in response to the murder of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. Details the militarized police response to the demonstrations that erupted in Ferguson. (Image made prior to the district attorney’s decision not to indict Wilson.) Scholars of labor posters will recognize the source image inspiration and the slogan, “Is Ferguson in America.” It references the “Is Colorado in America” poster in response to the Ludlow Massacre in 1914 – another example of state violence.
