Black HerStory to highlight contributions by Black women in St. Louis history

St. Louis-area artists aim to honor the historic contributions of Black St. Louis women with the project, Black HerStory.

The Griot Museum of Black History will coordinate the work through a $100,000 grant from Monument Lab, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit. Monument Labs Re:Generation initiative features artists from 10 cities who will use public art installations to reimagine monuments in cities across the country.

Artists and activists wanted to bring attention to the role Black women have made in the region, said Lois Conley, founder and executive director of the Griot Museum of Black History.

I really would like to see us do something around Black women in St. Louis particularly because even at the Griot in our interpretive exhibits, we don't have a lot of content on Black women, Conley said.
