Student calls for changes in Ferguson coverage

ST. LOUIS - Throughout all of our coverage of the unrest in Ferguson, we have tried to cover all angles of the story.

We brought you a community meeting held by the NAACP in its entirety Monday night.

Following that meeting, a young woman came forward with concerns and questions about how we portrayed the "overall message" of what was said that night.

It's a part of the story we feel is missing from our coverage.

So, we asked that young woman to join us on First at Four, for a discussion many will find uncomfortable.

Destiny Crockett is a sophomore at Princeton University, the first student from Clyde C. Miller Academy in the City of St. Louis to go on to attend an Ivy league school.

Destiny would like to see a change in the words and the images the media is using to portray much of what's going on in Ferguson. Click of the video player to hear her perspective.
