  • The American Red Cross is currently hosting a blood drive on Harris-Stowe State University’s Campus in Gillispie Hall. The blood drive is going on until 4 p.m. today.

    Justice Grant, a junior at the university, explains why she chose to give blood.

    “I chose to donate because I did it last year and I always hear about how much blood is needed in the state of Missouri, so I just chose to do it again,” Grant said.

    Ira Glanton, a Freshman at the university said, “It’s my first time donating, but I just wanted to help out.”

  • MISSOURI HUMANITIES PRESENTS AND UNVEILS HISTORICAL MARKER ON HARRIS-STOWE STATE UNIVERSITY'S CAMPUS

    A new historical marker and educational panel called “America’s Long Road to Freedom: Missouri’s Civil War” was unveiled this morning on Harris-Stowe State University’s campus.

    The panel presentation honored the United States Colored Troops, Hiram Reed, John Henderson, his wife, Mary Foote Henderson and mother-in-law, Eunice Foote.

    The panel is meant to impart a sense of the struggles that finally overcame human slavery in the United States, and that ultimately established Americans’ rights at the ballot box regardless of race and gender.

    The panel is located near the home that was owned by Henderson and his wife, Mary, in the 1870s and 80s, after Henderson served in the United States Senate.

    Henderson was the co-author of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which abolished slavery.

    Harris-Stowe State University Speech and Theater Instructor, Mr. Gregory Carr, served as the Keynote speaker for the event and shared historical facts relevant to panel and civil war. He also spoke of Hiram Reed, who he referred to as a hero. Reed was the first slave freed on the authority of the American military during the Civil War.

    Reed was freed in St. Louis in September 1861, by order of Major General John C. Fremont. He served in a Massachusetts cavalry regiment later in the Civil War.

    Mary’s mother, Eunice Foote’s life is also celebrated. Foote was a scientist who was instrumental in the Seneca Falls Convention for Women’s Suffrage in 1848.

    Heritage Programs Coordinator for Missouri Humanities, Greg Wolk collaborated with Harris-Stowe to locate and dedicate this tribute to our diverse history.

    “St. Louis has witnessed many advances in the cause of human rights, but few people realize how long and deeply our common history reflects this struggle. Hiram Reed's story is one of the most important stories we can tell,” Wolk said.

    Wolk, along with President Warmack, presented and unveiled the educational panel to Harris-Stowe State University on behalf of the Missouri Humanities Council.
    The panel is located at Harris-Stowe State University at J.B. “Jet” Banks Memorial Park on the north side of campus:
    3026 Laclede Avenue
    St. Louis, MO 63103

  • CONVERSATION PEACE WITH DR. MICHAEL ERIC DYSON: EVENT RECAP

    The Social Justice Institute and the Philos Project hosted an event at Harris-Stowe State University Tuesday evening called ‘Conversation Peace’ moderated by Kristina King.

    The event consisted of three panelists, featuring Dr. Michael Eric Dyson along with Dr. James Peterson, and Brian Abrahams discussing and debating the commonalities between Jews and Blacks-- or lack thereof.

    Dr. Dyson wears many hats, including but not limited to, a writer of more than 20 books, lecturer, preacher, professor, and media personality.

    Abrahams is the senior vice president for financial resource development at Jewish Federations of North America and has worked in Washington, D.C. as a political outreach director.

    Dr. Peterson is a writer, educational consultant, and content creator. He is also the founder of Hip Hop Scholars, Inc., “an association of hip hop generational scholars dedicated to researching and developing the cultural and educational potential of hip hop, urban, and youth cultures,” according to his website.

    The event allowed the panelists a space to discuss the struggles both Jews and Blacks had to face and suggested the groups should team up to overcome injustice and oppression.

    As the moderator, King proposed the first question, she said she felt youth don’t care enough about this topic.

    “A lot of students I’ve talked to didn’t even know there was a relationship between being Black and Jewish,” King said.

    Therefore, the panel discussion began as the panelists discussed how to get millennials and the youth to care about these issues.

    Dyson suggested millennials care, as long as the person trying to teach and persuade them can provide some type of evidence.

    “Millennials believe in receipts, especially when they’re from Missouri, they want you to ‘show me,’ and I respect that about this generation,” Dyson said.

    Peterson said he feels millennials will care more when history is given to them straightforward and when they are forced to experience it for themselves.

    “Part of engaging young folks is being authentic in our conversations,” Peterson said. “Classroom learning is important, but what I’ve learned is the best way students learn and are engaged is experiential.”

    The discussion evolved into commonalities between blacks and Jews as Dr. Dyson pointed out how the groups are more alike than different and why they should partner as allies.

    “Blacks and Jews have a lot in common; we’ve got oppression in common...attempts to destroy and get rid of us,” Dyson said.

    He also discussed how cultural vitality is embedded within both blacks and Jews along with both groups having similar pasts.

    Those are some of the reasons why Dyson suggested the groups should work together to overcome injustice and oppression.

    “We have more in common than we have apart,” Dyson said as he explained to an audience of 200 how Blacks and Jews have had more of an alliance and were more dependent upon each other in the past than many understand. “Even if you don’t understand your relationship, your enemies will help you understand how you’re related.”

    However, King argued Jews don’t face the same oppression Blacks face because they can pass as white and can still take advantage of white privilege where blacks can’t.

    “When I look at you I see you as a white man and I don’t think you can or are even interested in the struggles and oppression that plagues that Black community,” King said.

    Peterson agreed because “Black people can’t blend in.”

    Abrahams acknowledged King’s point responding that, “We have to look back at our past a lot and a lot of times we want to stand with Blacks on issues, be on the same team but then some may look at us and just see a white man—privilege, and that’s fair.”

    The panelists also threw in different pop culture references to make the conversation more relatable and appealing to the students.

    Dyson used several stanzas of hip-hop lyrics from songs created by artists like Nipsey Hussle and Jay-Z.

    Peterson used an X-men reference about mutants, an oppressed group, and the evolution of it.

    He used Professor X, who was a mutant himself, as an example because Professor X had a dream that mutants and non-mutants could live together in harmony.

    On the other hand, the antagonist, Magento, another mutant, had a radical point of view and believed violence was the answer.

    He said the creator of X-Men, a Jewish man, gathered the similarities of these characters from Martin Luther King Jr. (Professor X) and Malcolm X (Magneto).

    Dyson concluded the event talking about the need for teamwork and empathy.

    “When I think about Blacks and Jews and what they’ve contributed in the world, in literature, in music and so on that’s a thing of beauty, it gives us real ammunition to fight oppression, fight with ‘other’ others and show them empathy,” Dyson said.
