Hundreds of people gathered in Missouri to pay their last respects to Michael Brown, the African-American teenager who was shot by a white police officer on August 9.
It was a sad day for the Ferguson, Missouri community when it was announced that 18-year-old unarmed Michael Brown was gunned down by a police officer.
The fatal shooting drew comparisons to the death of Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant, both young black men.
After days of protests and a national debate on where race stands in America, Michael was laid to rest on Monday, August 25, 2014, preceded by a service at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri.
At the funeral service, mourners sang, clapped and danced, remembering the teen. His body was in a black and gold casket, topped with the St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap he was wearing when he was killed.
