Eighth Grader Walks the Red Carpet
Cole Gipson ’23 is featured in Where the Pavement Ends, a documentary directed by Jane Gillooly that «explores the charged relationship between the historically all-black town of Kinloch and its formerly all-white neighbor Ferguson,» as the Cinema St. Louis website describes. Gipson appears in the movie, the trailer and on the movie poster.
He shares, «My great-grandfather was the first ever black to graduate from St. Louis University in 1944 before integration. His archives were used for this documentary.» The documentary was shown at Tivoli last weekend as part of the St. Louis Film Festival, where Cole got to walk the red carpet!
