MLK Bell Toll Commemoration
We had an opportunity to participate in the MLK50 Bell Toll by joining others at the Missouri History Museum. We were featured on their Facebook Live feed and interviewed by a reporter, Nassim Benchaabane, from the St. Louis Post Dispatch. He wrote:
Charlene Blair, 55, stood listening to Nance’s words while holding a framed picture of the ceremonial U.S. Postal Stamp bearing King’s image, part of a collection she has of stamps of famous or accomplished African-Americans.
Blair was a kindergartner in East St. Louis when King was assassinated.
“As I grew older, I became more and more appreciative of the opportunities I had in my life because of Dr. King,” she said. “I wanted to show my appreciation for all that he’s done for us.”
