Panel Discussion: “The History of Immigration in St. Louis”

Panel Discussion: “The History of Immigration in St. Louis”

  • pin Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries 3648 Washington Blvd, St. Louis 63108 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Anna Crosslin, president and CEO of the International Institute, will lead a discussion about St. Louis’ evolving immigrant landscape and immigrants will share their stories. 

In 1850, St. Louis was the eighth largest U.S. city, with a population that was 50% foreign-born. German and Irish immigrants were among the largest communities. Today, the St. Louis region is 21st in size and the foreign-born population is less than 5%. The city’s immigrant communities now boast hundreds of ethnicities and countries represented, with Mexican, Chinese and Bosnian groups among the largest. 

This discussion will explore how our changing immigrant representation has led to a rich tapestry of arts and culture in St. Louis.

Admission free, but reservations suggested. Call Paula Lincoln at 314-533-9900 x 37 or email plincoln@TheSheldon.org to reserve your seat.
