Who is Sam Blow?
An original poem by Treasure Shields Redmond

Here is a most beautiful poem penned by Ms. Treasure Redmond Shields about Dred Scott as seen through the eye of his wife Harriet.  I am greatly appreciative of the sincerity and gentleness with which she describes who the composite man was.  Bravo, Treasure. 
And Thank You!

55th anniversary of historic protest

St. Louis civil rights activist Percy Green was honored by the Jefferson National Parks Association with a poster commemorating his historic climb up the Gateway Arch 55 years ago on July 14, 1964. The climb was in protest of the lack of African American workers or contractors being hired for the arch construction project. The protest was successful. Today, the diversity of their workforce is evident as you walk around the newly renovated Arch. Watch the clip from Fox 2 News below.

Don’t miss Dred and Harriet with Thomas Jefferson on the wall and tables in the Arch Cafe’.  It’s stunning!!
