One of the most significant events in African-American history took place in St. Louis with the trial of Dred Scott at the Old Courthouse.
But before that, York explored the Lewis & Clark Expedition up the Missouri River, and afterwards, the great musicians and scientists and so many more African-Americans influenced life in St. Louis and around the world.
It’s not just about people, but also the transatlantic slave industry and life in Africa yesterday and today, where “the griot (gree-oh)” preserves history and interprets stories for tomorrow.
Admission for adults drops to $5 in February.
Located in North St. Louis.
