This is just a quick post to let everyone know the *ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS* exhibit at the St. Louis History Museum is now open -- and to encourage all of you to visit it over the next year. The exhibit, which is in the main exhibit area at the museum, is called "#1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis." It is a HUGE exhibit devoted to many of the milestone events in the fight for justice and freedom for all -- all of which took place right there in St. Louis. There are tons of pictures and artifacts to explore, and they even have a special area where actors have been hired to portray historic individuals and interact with the groups that go through. My documentary film, "The Story of 'Shelley v. Kraemer'" is also in a special viewing theater in the exhibit, so please stop by and watch it if you get the chance. The exhibit is, in my judgment, the best exhibit of this type I've ever seen. So, if you are anywhere near St. Louis and can stop by the Missouri History Museum in Forest Part to see the exhibit, I think you will really enjoy it! The exhibit runs now until April of 2018, so you have plenty of time to go through it, hopefully many times (because you will see something new each time you go through). The exhibit is also free and open to the public during regular museum hours.
I'm going to post two pictures from my last visit to the exhibit. One is of me at the opening to the exhibit area. Another is of me with some of my pals in the theater area where my film is showing.
