“AFTER THE STORM: JOPLIN’S LOST HERITAGE” ON YOUTUBE

After the Storm: Joplin's Lost HeritageFor the 3rd anniversary of the May 2011 tornado, the Post Memorial Art Reference Library’s Director, Leslie Simpson, created a 15-minute historic overview of the areas destroyed titled, After the Storm: Joplin’s Lost Heritage.

Leslie presented this program daily at noon during the week of May 19th and was besieged by requests from others interested but unable to be present. With C2C’s assistance, this important presentation is now available to all on YouTube.

C2C is happy to have played a small part in making this presentation more accessible. Leslie, thank you for this gift to our community. Watch and remember!
