Fontbonne to Host Documentary Film Screening

ST. LOUIS — Fontbonne University will host a screening of “The Pruitt-Igoe Myth: An Urban History,” a documentary film, Monday, June 13, at 7 p.m. The screening will take place in the Lewis Room of the Taylor library on Fontbonne’s Clayton campus.

The film tells the story of the transformation of the American city in the decades after World War II, through the lens of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe housing development and the St. Louis residents who called it home. A moderated discussion will follow the film.

This event is sponsored by the symposium Collective Memory in St. Louis: Recollection, Forgetting, and the Common Good. It is made possible through the generosity of the Fontbonne Community Connection.
