Diversion Books and Washington Post Release New Book on Ferguson to Mark One-Year Anniversary


New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/06/2015 --As America approaches the anniversary of Michael Brown's death and ensuing protests in Ferguson, Missouri, Diversion Books, in partnership with The Washington Post, has released FERGUSON: THREE MINUTES THAT CHANGED AMERICA, a meticulously detailed, insightful report on the killing that brought the nation's attention to the frequently violent, often deadly interactions between young men of color and police departments.

In FERGUSON, renowned journalist Wesley Lowery has pulled together a vast and troubling panorama of reportage on the Ferguson slaying and the aftermath—the marches, the clashes, and the slow, painful process of building trust between a devastated community and a police department tasked with serving and protecting it.

"FERGUSON is a vital addition to our ongoing publishing partnership with The Washington Post. For anyone who wants to better understand the tragic incident which sparked much-needed discussion around race in America, FERGUSON is an invaluable resource." Says Scott Waxman, CEO of Diversion Books.

Challenging and necessary, FERGUSON engages America in a frank dialogue about race relations, about legacies of bigotry that continue to this day, and about a path forward as one nation, equal under the law.

FERGUSON is currently featured on Amazon as a Kindle Single. Diversion has also made the title available wherever eBooks are sold, including B&N, iBooks, and Kobo.
