Mill Creek: An Erased Community
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Vivian Gibson will discuss her best-selling memoir The Last Children of Mill Creek which chronicles the triumphs and daily struggles of her large family. You’ll hear about the friends, shop owners, church ladies and teachers who made Mill Creek into a tight-knit African American Community. In 1959, Mill Creek, a segregated working-class neighborhood in St. Louis was razed to build The Daniel Boone Expressway, an act of racism disguised as “urban renewal.”
