Nine palettes of red brick arrived to be laid for the areas surrounding the stage at the site of the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace and outdoor event space, across the street from the St. Louis Uhuru House.
The permeable pavers will allow storm water to drain into the ground, reducing runoff and keeping surrounding waterways cleaner.
