Carole Shelton presents “Many Thousands Gone.” This presentation is supported by the Missouri Humanities Council in partnership with the State Historical Society of Missouri. 

Join the Missouri Humanities Council & Kirkwood Public Library for Carole Shelton’s “Many Thousands Gone.” There were thousands of African American women living in Missouri in the shadows of enslavement before and during the Civil War. Many of their names and deeds have long been forgotten. This program focuses on the struggles for survival as freedom loomed on the horizon.

Carole Shelton is a storyteller, author, and retired educator. She tells stories from around the world with a hint of music from the heart. As a part of her repertoire she has researched and crafted historical first-person portrayals of African American women.
