Ethnic St. Louis traces the St. Louis roots of 59 ethnic groups, from the founding French Creoles to the refugees from today’s turmoil in places like the Middle East.

The authors of Ethnic St. Louis discuss their book that traces all the various immigrant communities that have made St. Louis the city it is today.

St. Louis has a long history as a melting pot of different cultures and a new, photo-illustrated book, Ethnic St. Louis, is striving to do justice to the various immigrant communities that have made their home here.
