Emma Klues, VP of Communications & Outreach at Great Rivers Greenway, and Lois Conley, Founder & Executive Director of the Griot Museum of Black History, talk with KTRS' Jennifer Blome and Wendy Wiese about the museum’s mission and work.
Ms. Conley also serves as Co-chair for the Brickline working group that focuses on the greenway’s segment from Fairground Park to the Grand MetroLink station, and she discusses some significant history of this park. Fairground Park is one of the four anchor parks that will be connected by the Brickline Greenway, along with Tower Grove Park, Forest Park, the Gateway Arch National Park, many more destinations in between.
She also shares her experience as a former resident of the Mill Creek Valley neighborhood, which will be commemorated through a public art installation on a portion of the Brickline Greenway along Market St. from Compton Ave. to 20th St.
