Come learn about the history of land use in the St. Louis region. In this combined presentation and panel discussion, we will hear from historians, architects, writers and biologists who will present their work in the St. Louis region. From the Indigenous peoples at Cahokia (the largest urban settlement of the Mississippi River Valley) to redlining and the residential segregation ordinance during the Jim Crow Era to the Pruitt-Igoe urban housing project, we will discuss how environmental racism and justice have shaped the development and biodiversity of this region.
