The Business of Fashion
Thursday, March 2 | 5:30pm–8:00pm

From the late 19th century through the end of World War II, St. Louis was outmatched only by New York City in garment manufacturing. Much of the industry was located on Washington Avenue—the street that boasted more shoe manufacturers than any other street in the world and was the birthplace of junior wear. St. Louis’s shoe and garment industry began a long decline in the 1950s, but the last several years have seen a reversal of that trend. Join Curator Adam MacPhàrlain for a presentation about St. Louis’s fashion history, followed by a roundtable conversation with some of the fashion professionals who are working to put St. Louis back on the fashion map. Panelists include Paulette Black (editor, Coverings Magazine), Felia Davenport (associate professor and owner, Kaleesi Rose Kollection), Audra Harrold (executive director, STL Fashion Alliance), Mary Ruppert-Stroescu (designer and founder at RECLEM and associate professor, Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts), and Susan Sherman (co-founder, St. Louis Fashion Fund).

Support for St. Louis Strong programming is provided by Bank of America.

Primm Lecture | Finding Frank Moore: How Recent Research Changed Our Understanding of the Elaine Massacre
Thursday, March 16 | 5:30pm–8:00pm

The annual James Neal Primm Lecture in History is presented by the University of Missouri–St. Louis. This speaker series brings distinguished historians to St. Louis to share their current research through public lectures, seminars, and informal meetings in honor of James Neal Primm, Curators’ Professor Emeritus of the University of Missouri–St. Louis.

In 1923 the Elaine Twelve, a group of sharecroppers who had survived the famed Elaine massacre in Arkansas, were defendants in the US Supreme Court rulings "Moore v. Dempsey" and "Ware v. Dempsey". Despite the court’s determination that the men had been denied due process when an angry mob assembled outside the courthouse and demanded their executions, the sharecroppers remained in prison, and the governor refused to overturn their death sentences. Their sentences were eventually commuted, and the Elaine Twelve were released from prison in 1925. Fearing that they would be lynched if they remained in Arkansas, most immediately fled north, where they found sanctuary and reinvented themselves in their new homes of Chicago, St. Louis, East St. Louis, Springfield, and Topeka. Join historian Brian Mitchell to learn how the lives of the Elaine Twelve have challenged researchers to critically examine the roles that debt peonage, racialized violence, and fear played in the Great Migration—and to find ways to commemorate their struggles.

"Functional: The Thelonious Monk Story"
Thursday, April 20

This full-length play honors the musical genius of pianist and jazz composer Thelonious Sphere Monk and tackles the issues of mental illness as it relates to disparities in healthcare, police interaction, education, and social acceptance. We will explore Monk’s misdiagnosis, the discriminatory practices he faced, and the societal stigma that plagued his career—and how these issues persist today. We’ll also recognize the importance of creative self-expression through the arts and celebrate how Monk stood firm to pursue his music without compromise. Written by Mariah L. Richardson and directed by Fannie Belle Lebby, "Functional: The Thelonious Monk Story" stars Phillip “Dr. Philgood” Graves. Each performance is free with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
