Calling for visionaries who are Ferguson residents under the age of 30!
How it works: The Missouri History Museum and the Anti-Defamation League will review and choose four proposals that will be presented at the public event on Sunday, February 1st . The selected proposals will be assessed for their ability to bridge racial and socio-economic divides in Ferguson from the standpoint of design, history, and service learning. Selected finalists will be given advance notice to prepare a 3 minute presentation.

Background: In early March of 2012 Franz Strasser, a reporter for BBC World in Washington was researching background information on St. Louis for a news report. He found himself filming a second news report based on what his research uncovered; a city still segregated. The video features St. Louisans, as they share their insights into racial and socioeconomic segregation in the city.
