Congratulations to Beth Miller (AMCS MA PROGRAM)!

on March 15th, 2019

Beth recently moderated a panel featuring former residents of Evens-Howard Place, an historically African-American middle-class neighborhood in Brentwood that was displaced for commercial development (the Promenade in Brentwood). Beth’s expertise in the area, and her connection to the event, came out of the research she conducted for her AMCS MA project, Howard-Evans Place: A Middle-Class African-American Suburb in the Heart of St. Louis County. The event was attended by more than two-dozen former residents as well as the mayor, city administrator, and several aldermen. One outcome of the discussion is a movement to erect a new monument to Howard-Evens Place as the current one is situated in a way some former community members find disrespectful. For more information, check out the local news website that covered the panel and Beth’s conversation with Don Marsh on St. Louis Public Radio’s St. Louis On the Air.
