Harper Barnes talked about his book, Never Been a Time: The 1917 Race Riot That Sparked the Civil Rights Movement, in which he looks at the July 2, 1917, race riot in East St. Louis that left between 40 and 200 people dead.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in St. Louis, Missouri, from May 17-21 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Charter Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
