Just a bit of regional good news and possibly a sign of progress in the aftermath of a racial uprising riot that resonated throughout the nation.
Take a look:
STL Public Radio: Ferguson community center opens at site of QuikTrip burned during 2014 protests
"In 2014, the burned-out Ferguson QuikTrip quickly became a national symbol of a community’s frustration over police brutality. Local and national leaders hope the building that replaced the convenience store becomes a symbol of hope. Nonprofit, corporate and political leaders gathered Wednesday to celebrate the grand opening of the Ferguson Community Empowerment Center. It also served as the opening of the National Urban League’s annual conference, which is in St. Louis through Saturday."
