(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Ferguson marked the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death on Sunday.

Crowds gathered for a silent march in Ferguson, Missouri on Sunday, marking the one-year anniversary since Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot and killed by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

The shooting sparked months of protests and a national conversation on race relations within the country.

“Ferguson had a lot going for it before Aug. 9,” John Powell, a member of a group called “One Ferguson,” told ABC News. “But when Michael Brown was shot, it brought to the forefront that we had some injustices in Ferguson, especially for people of color.”

Though there was a silent march on Sunday, hundreds of protesters had demonstrations over night and marched to police headquarters where they started yelling at police officers behind barricades.
