Rev. Blackmon became nationally recognized as a prominent voice for social change in the aftermath of the killing of Michael Brown, Jr., in Ferguson, MO, just miles from her church. She immediately got involved in organizing the Black Lives Matter movement, affectively assisted and collaborated with the people in the community working for justice. She was appointed to the Ferguson Commission by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships for the White House by President Barack H. Obama.
