From August 2019 – August 2020, the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation commemorates 400 + Years of Fortitude of Americans of African descent and their contributions to our country.
St. Louis has a long and documented history of challenging racial injustice. This history includes several key battles having long-lasting impact on the City of St. Louis and the nation as a whole. The Missouri History Museum’s recent installation #1 In Civil Rights, The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis presents the accounts of this history that has been too often unacknowledged.
