FREE and open to all. No RSVP required. 

In celebration of Black History Month, this virtual event will feature a screening of Clayton's Neighborhoods. 

Episode 3: The Forgotten Neighborhood and Q/A features former Clayton High School history teacher and historian, Donna Rogers-Beard. The event will also feature special guests: a former Clayton teacher who is authoring a book on this subject and Doris Graham, who grew up in the neighborhood and attended the Crispus Attucks School. This important episode tells the story of the thriving African-American neighborhood in Clayton that dates back to the turn of the 20th Century.

The Clayton’s Neighborhoods Video Project is a historic look at multiple neighborhoods designed by nationally known architects in the early 1900s. The Clayton Community Foundation (CCF) History Committee teamed with Cordell Whitlock, award-winning former KSDK television reporter, and Peter Foggy, former KSDK television videographer, to prepare the script and produce the videos of eight neighborhoods within the City of Clayton community over the past few months. Also starring in Clayton’s Neighborhoods is Esley Hamilton, who served for nearly 40 years as the St. Louis County Parks and Recreation Preservation Historian. Hamilton has been called “irreplaceable” and “encyclopedic,” and received one of four nationwide preservation awards from the Secretary of the Interior.
