The St. Louis Gateway and the Black Community Lost Due to it.

Now what’s crazy about this is that after doing a bit more research, I came to find that many of the families that lived in St. Louis at the time that owned a business, were people who either descended from or were formerly enslaved people who bought their own freedom, started a business in the area, and then used the money from their business to purchase the freedom of their family members.

It seems to make the story even more insidious when you factor in this almost covered up fact, but what adds insult to an already massive injury, is that the city itself committed voter fraud to ensure it’s success in a project such as this!

There honestly may be more to the story and if you desire to do more research then by all means, use these sources as a starting point! Source 1 Source 2 Source 3
