Description

NiNi Harris has researched and written 14 books on St. Louis history and architecture. She will discuss This Used to be St. Louis, taking a look at the layered history of the city from the French colonial era and the Civil War to the waves of immigrants who came to the city from all over the world and the great migration from the South that brought rural African Americans and whites to the city. St. Louis's distinctive ethnic neighborhoods, its architectural and cultural heritage, its entrepreneurial spirit, and its many industries and businesses all contributed to the story of this major U.S. city. Harris's book will be available for sale and signing after the program.
