Re:Generation – The Black HerStory Initiative

The Black HerStory Initiative of The Griot Museum uses the names of St. Louis streets to implement a commemorative reckoning movement that honors the political, social, and cultural legacies of Black women. A series of community-rich “sign shops” (aka, workshops)  and community-engaged public research have culminated in co-curated public programming and herstory memory markers.

Team members include: Lois D. Conley, Eric Ellingsen, Precious Musa, Erika D. Neal, De Nichols, Andrew Olden, Darian Wigfall, Tracy Williams, and Alana Marie Woodson.
Local Partner Organization:  Diaspora Connections Unlimited
