Message from Josh Williams, Incarcerated Ferguson Protester

The life of Joshua Williams, a Ferguson protester, changed dramatically after he started a fire in an outside trash can during the Ferguson Uprising. The 18-year-old, passionate and angry about the death of Mike Brown, had no previous record. He was convicted in 2015 of arson and burglary.

Williams is often harassed by prison guards for his high profile role in the Ferguson Uprising. He recently shared his views with OBS. Click here.
