St. Louis has been a prominent player in African Americans’ fight for civil rights for nearly two centuries, starting in 1819 when free blacks and their white allies protested Missouri’s admission into the Union as a slave state. After exploring the Museum’s powerful #1 in Civil Rights exhibition, this tour will visit the Old Courthouse, where the 1819 protest took place, and travel to other venues central to St. Louis’s civil rights story.
Tour Leader: Gwen Moore, Curator of Urban Landscape and Community Identity
