Phillips Hospital, 1937-1979, a segregated hospital in the heart of Black St Louis, Missouri The Ville and Its Champions of the Community: Kids raised in a walkable community where the folks look like them - doctors, nurses, lawyers, tradesmen, and business owners; where wealth stayed in the community. The Story of Segregation in St Louis by Jeanette Cooperman, October 17, 2014. "St. Louis is divided along many lines. And race plays a role in every one of those divisions. It also determines our future, because if you make a transparent map of racial segregation and lay it over other maps political power, cultural influence, health, wealth, education, and employment the pattern repeats." #Redlined: A St Lous Story by Jacobi Commons. Exposing deeply-rooted systems of redlining that have disproportionately affected Black and Brown people dating back to the 1920's. 1915 Initiative Petition avoided mixed blocks occupied by both white and colored people "...written to the Board of Election Commissioners petitioning White and "Colored" citizens to live separately. In Section 1 and Section 2, the petition describes the strict requirements that would be upheld in a new St. Louis ordinance, mandating specific "blocks" be created. Section 3 defined the word "block". Later sections of the petition have been omitted, but included penalties that will be carried out if ordinances are broken by either race group." In How Racism Takes Place, George Lipsitz writes that in St. Louis, protection of white property and privilege guided nearly all decisions about law and policies that promoted the establishment of new small and exclusive suburban municipalities with restrictive zoning codes.
