This qualitative geographic study explores how the Black Radical Imagination is present in Ferguson's community-student activism. Ferguson activists were not only fighting against the police state that had taken the life of 18-year old Michael Brown, they were fighting against urban forms of capital accumulation and repressive residential and campus climates. Community-student activists were also re-imagining a different type of society that exists beyond the university walls. These activists were both community members and college students (which are not mutually exclusive) who through their non-binary identities embody the decolonial concept of Scyborg/Ghost in the Machine.
