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.
- See below for upcoming programs like a walking tour and Northside Night Out!

Honoring Mill Creek Valley: Mother Wit Book Discussion
If you missed it live, watch this virtual discussion with author Malaika Horne, PhD, about her book Mother Wit – Exalting Motherhood while Honoring a Great Mother.
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
