    Dr. John Wright and Dr. John Wright, Jr discuss their latest book “Extraordinary Black Missourians, 2nd Edition.” African Americans have been a part of Missouri from its territorial days to the present, making significant contributions across myriad professions as pioneers, educators, civil rights activists, and journalists, to name a few. Now in its second edition, Extraordinary Black Missourians profiles more than 100 notable citizens, such as Grace Bumbry, George Washington Carver, Elizabeth Keckley, Frankie Freeman, Scott Joplin, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, James Beckwourth, and others who have contributed to Missouri’s African American legacy.
