Film Synopsis

Where the Pavement Ends compares a 1968 dispute over a road blockade in Ferguson, Missouri with the infamous road, also in Ferguson, where Michael Brown’s dead body lay 46 years later. The barricade separated the then all-white town of Ferguson from the neighboring all-black town of Kinloch. The film sheds light on two moments in time that have been defined by racial divisiveness and offers some context that surrounded these historical boiling points.
