On August 9, 2014, Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri. His death led to nationwide protests, and heightened scrutiny of police use of force in minority communities.
And to mark the anniversary, national and international media outlets are predictably returning to the scene.
"This weekend Ferguson will mark the date with marches, protests and concerts," said MSNBC's Al Sharpton.
