Brickline Greenway – Get Involved
A VISION THIS BOLD TAKES ALL OF US
Community involvement is at the very core of everything the Brickline Greenway stands for. It’s building our greenway brick by brick and voice by voice. That’s why we’re inviting you to get involved in a variety of different ways. You can join in discussions at our various town halls and community events (either in-person or virtually). You can answer surveys and share your opinions on the development and growth of the Greenway. Or you can simply subscribe and stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest information. No matter your level of involvement in the process – know that it’s important to all of us.

The author will read a short excerpt and then be joined by her sister Gwen Moore, curator at the Missouri Historical Society, followed by participant Q&A moderated by journalist Jade Harrell. Having grown up in the Mill Creek Valley community, Dr. Horne’s book is “a moving tribute to a devoted mother whose determination, dedication and strong character allowed her family to breach barriers of race, class and economic want to achieve measurable success.” – Gwen Moore

Stories of Market Street Virtual Panel Discussion
If you missed it live, you can watch here. In conjunction with Metro Theater Company’s production of Last Stop on Market Street, MTC presents a virtual panel discussion exploring the stories of St. Louis’s own Market Street and the people who once lived in the thriving community of Mill Creek Valley which developed along Market Street.
Hear from historians and residents of the neighborhood, which was demolished starting in 1959, leaving 20,000 African American St. Louisans displaced in the name of urban renewal. Also, learn about the developing Brickline Greenway, and how it will commemorate the Mill Creek Valley neighborhood in its former footprint along a one-mile stretch of Market Street.
