FOUR YEARS after the untimely murder of 18-year-old black teen Michael Brown, who was shot by police, his mother Lesley McSpadden has made a moving announcement.
The 38-year-old revealed that she would be running for Ferguson City Council, where she will hope to advocate for for building better community relations.
Speaking exclusively to the Grio: “Yesterday made four years for my son’s death. I thought that I would wake up and would be really sad.
“But when I woke up I had a different type of energy. I had an energy of get up out this bed and go. You have work to do.
