Description

Jean Rissover created this image to illustrate the March 1, 1799 sale of Sam's Family. The sale was advertised from St. Louis in the north to New Madrid in the south and included other enslaved Africans as well as several animals. This image serves as the focus of our exhibit- the African Experience in Colonial Ste. Genevieve, on display at the LeMeilleur House since 2013. Our goal is to interpret this multi-ethnic, multi-cultural community from each culture's perspective and voice. If you are a slave descendant from Ste. Genevieve, please add your stories to this project.
