CLICK HERE: The Mary Meachum Freedom Celebration
Every year, we work with a variety of partners to plan and host the Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing Celebration on the Mississippi Greenway. The theme of the event changes each year and shines a spotlight on important-yet rarely told or not widely known- black history in St. Louis. The 2018 celebration brought to life the story of Unfair Fair: Prejudice on the Pike. Check out the video below to learn more!
