Talk and Book Signing by the Honorable William L. Clay Sr.
UM-St. Louis Millennium Student Center
3rd Floor Century Rooms
This book signing will feature Clay's book The Jefferson Bank Confrontation: The Struggle for Civil Rights in St. Louis. In 1963, at the same time that Dr. King was leading the march on Washington to deliver his "I Have a Dream" speech, then Alderman Bill Clay ignited the modern civil rights struggle in St. Louis with the historic Jefferson Bank protests. That six-month struggle led to the integration of the bank and was the first major victory for African Americans struggling to gain equality in employment and public services in St. Louis. This book by Bill Clay is a provocative historical memoir that tells the untold true story of courage in the face of police intimidation, death threats and jail. It also chronicles the broad coalition of brave St. Louisans, both black and white, who came together in the struggle for justice and equality.
