Griot Museum Practicum

In Spring 2019, students from the Museums, Heritage, and Public History Program from the University of Missouri – Saint Louis partnered with the Griot Museum of Black History to design and install the exhibit, "Still We Thrive."  Created in consultation with community members, the exhibit highlighted the history, identity, resilience, and activism of the following historic Saint Louis area African-American neighborhoods: The Ville, Fountain Park, and Lewis Place. The exhibit was on display in May and June of 2019.  Please contact  Dr. Andrew Hurley for more information.
