Hi. At about 6 minutes in, the podcast refers to the St. Louis Massacre, and describes them as happening in 1917. I think you may be conflating two different events.

I'm not conflating the two, certainly, but I'm sorry for the ambiguity.

Thoughtful, engaged, and informative podcast. In such a short span, the texture and details of contextualization of this important but all too little known figure are effectively provided by narrator.
