Frankie Muse Freeman, who turns 100 years old on November 24, was celebrated with a dinner and dance Saturday, Oct. 22, hosted by the St. Louis NAACP at the St. Louis Marriott Grand Hotel. Freeman was the first woman appointed to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and the lead attorney for the landmark case "Davis et al. v. the St. Louis Housing Authority," which resulted in the end of legal racial discrimination in the city's public housing.
