When Brown, who was unarmed, was shot by Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson, it marked a breaking point for black Americans. Ferguson became the site of massive protests and civil unrest. Whose Streets allows artists, musicians, and residents who were at the forefront of these protests to share their side of the story.

Folayan said she wanted to make the film as a "tribute to our people — our deeply complex, courageous, flawed, powerful, and ever hopeful people — who dare to dream of brighter days. This is more than a documentary...this is a story we personally lived. This is our story to tell."
