Honoring Mill Creek Valley: A Conversation about Art, History & Community Along the Brickline Greenway

October 15th 11:00 am - 12:30 pm CDT

In 1959, the once-thriving Mill Creek Valley neighborhood in the City of St. Louis was destroyed and its 20,000 Black residents were displaced in the name of “urban renewal.”

Join us online this Friday at 11:00 a.m. for a streaming panel conversation about a visionary collaboration of local partners, with input from area residents and stakeholders, that is bringing to life a project to commemorate the Mill Creek Valley neighborhood in its former footprint along a one-mile stretch of Market Street between Compton Avenue and 22nd Street. A live Q&A will immediately follow the panel conversation.

This is the first of many events and activities in the coming months to encourage connection and story sharing, so we can learn from decisions of the past and have an open discussion about what we hope our city’s future will look like. We invite you to be part of these conversations.

Watch the October 15 panel discussion here.
