Saint Louis, a symbol for St. Louis?

Who was the real Saint Louis, Louis IX of France (1214–70)? What was his role in the Crusades? And what is the history of the statue on top of Art Hill in Saint Louis (MO)? Why was this statue an object of controversy in the Saint Louis community on June 27, 2020?

On Tuesday, February 2 at 5PM (CT), join the new Center of Excellence 's French Connexions Cultural Center at Washington University in St Louis for a virtual discussion featuring Julie Singer, associate professor of medieval French literature at Washington University in St. Louis, and Amy Torbert, the Andrew W.
