The Last Children of Mill Creek

Author/Illustrator: Vivian Gibson
Published Apr 20th, 2020
$ 1895 USD



Vivian Gibson grew up in Mill Creek, a neighborhood of St. Louis razed in 1959 to build a highway. Her family, friends, church community, and neighbors were all displaced by urban renewal. In this moving memoir, Gibson recreates the every day lived experiences of her family, including her college-educated mother, who moved to St. Louis as part of the Great Migration, her friends, shop owners, teachers, and others who made Mill Creek into a warm, tight-knit, African-American community, and reflects upon what it means that Mill Creek was destroyed by racism and “urban renewal.”
