So much of modern life is hearsay and sound bite, but your friends at The Commonspace want you to be in direct contact with St. Louis' movers and shakers. To that end, we're kicking off Conversation Café, an occasional, informal lunch conversation that will give you a chance to ask those burning questions and express your own thoughts. Today's guest, Sylvester Brown, Jr., is the newest voice in the pages of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, hired to write the column left open by the late Greg Freeman. He has plenty of experience in opining in print, having founded and edited Take Five magazine with his wife. Lately, his columns have taken a particular interest in issues of race and education in St. Louis. Good food, good conversation what could be better?
