Permanent Michael Brown memorial installed in Ferguson
FERGUSON (AP) - A plaque and metallic likeness of a dove have been installed in Michael Brown's memory near the spot where the 18-year-old was shot and killed last summer.
Crews installed the plaque and dove Thursday hundreds of feet apart on a sidewalk in Ferguson, Missouri, one day after the mid-street memorial for Brown was cleared. Wednesday would have been Brown's 19th birthday.
The makeshift memorial had cropped up within hours of Brown's death and became what many saw as a symbol of a new civil rights movement over race and policing.
