An important facet of the Missouri Humanities Council’s mission is to bring the humanities to every corner of Missouri. One important way we do this is by working with our partner scholars to build engaging exhibits that can easily travel the state. In doing so, we take the study of the humanities directly to your local community. If you’re a school, library, or other institution looking to feature one of our current exhibits or perhaps there’s a new one you’d like to see produced, contact email@example.com for more information.
This exhibit was developed by Sac and Fox tribal officers in three states and beautifully designed by Greg Olson, the Exhibits Specialist at the Missouri State Archives. Conveying one Sac and Fox legend that explains their sacred relationship to all creation, the gently curved 10-foot long panel packs and ships easily in two cases.
American history has always been about freedom: who has it, who doesn’t, how much there should be and how to get it. From its founding in 1764, St. Louis has been home to African Americans. Until 1865, most were enslaved. The Dred Scott Exhibit tells the story of St. Louis enslaved African Americans and their quests for freedom.
