Thursday, September 2

Olin Library, Kagan Grand Stair
Olin Library, Brookings Dr, St. Louis, MO

The history of Washington Park Cemetery, the once largest African American cemetery in the St Louis region, reveals a pattern of practices representing larger, systemic issues of race, politics, and power. The project Higher Ground seeks to honor and make visible the lives of people and the land that has seen both racial injustice and the power of ancestral resiliency.
