As the Founding President of the Annie Malone Historical Society, I have spent a lot of time over the last several days monitoring responses to the recently released Netflix miniseries, “Self-Made.” I have read countless e-mails and online articles, fielded phone calls, received text messages, Facebook and blog posts, and discovered more about twitter and Instagram than I ever knew. Two things are clear. People have strong opinions and feelings about what and how information was presented in this miniseries. No matter if the people lived in the St. Louis community or out of it, the miniseries got a lot of people talking.
