The Dred Scott Heritage Foundation
February 17 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
We are fortunate to have a special guest speaker for our February 17 Forum. Lynne M. Jackson, founder, executive director of the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation, and the great-great granddaughter of Dred and Harriet Scott will tell us some of the many things she has learned about her famous ancestors.
The freedom cases that the Scotts filed here in St. Louis turned out to be a catalyst for the American Civil War. Lynne will talk about the cases, the life and times of Dred Scott, and this story’s continuing relevance to struggles for human rights and dignity.
