#1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis

Thursday, February 15, 2018, 6:00 PM - 1:00 AM

"#1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis" examines the local civil rights movement and the city's leading role in advancing the cause of racial justice. From ground-level activism to groundbreaking court rulings, St. Louis has been front and center in contesting racial inequities. "#1 in Civil Rights" uncovers a history that's compelling and complex, but that all too often has been overlooked in the telling and retelling of the larger national narrative. That narrative includes four precedent-setting Supreme Court civil rights cases that originated in St. Louis--possibly the most to ever reach the High Court from one source. It also includes events and battles that had significant and lasting impact.
