The Colors of Crime: St. Louis Under Siege
The Colors of Crime: St. Louis Under Siege is a documentary short about the amount of crime in the city of St. Louis and why we continue to make the top of the list every year for most dangerous cities. Are we really the most dangerous city in the U.S.? Why is it that cities like Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles have their fair share of crime but St. Louis continues to top them every year in their numbers. Current and past events dealing with this issue will be included. Interviews include law enforcement, community leaders/pastor, lawyer, criminal justice specialist, journalist, and other citizens that have something to say. With all the programs, and law enforcement in this city, why is the crime rate still on the rise and how can we fix it?
The St. Louis African American
History & Genealogy Society
Leah Simms and NineLAB (of Nine Network of Public Media) presents a documentary short about an organization whose mission is to find and tell the stories of our ancestors. The St. Louis African American History and Genealogical Society tells us the importance of knowing your history. There are many genealogy societies across the country, but the experience through the research process is very different for African-Americans. This organization helps those who are willing to go on this journey by showing them how to go about discovering the lives of their ancestors with research, DNA testing, and teaching African and American history.
