The Field House Museum, 634 S. Broadway in downtown St. Louis, presents "Foundations of Freedom," on view Feb. 2-Jan. 31, 2020. The momentous story of Dred and Harriet Scott’s fight for freedom is one of enduring strength, seemingly triumphant injustice, and rippling effects. The exhibition follows the landmark case on its journey to the United States Supreme Court with attention to slavery in Missouri, freedom suits, the contributions of the attorney for the Scott family, Roswell Field, and the rise of national discussions on slavery and citizenship.
