The first African-American St. Louis mayor, Freeman Bosley, Jr., now a practicing lawyer, Whirl columnist and KATZ radio host, criticized President Barrack Obama as Bosley accepted honors at the dedication of the final eight buildings of which was the Bosley’s Residence Hall and dining facility. He said, “And, what’s going on with Pesident Obama? I wish the president had a team like ours. I wish he had a Darlene Green, a Peter Sortino, a Robert Henry. I wish the president had people who will stand up for the people with courage, conviction and commitment.” Bosley also challenged the college students to leave a legacy of something positive after graduation. Sole GOP’er on hand was Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, who took credit along with H-S’s Henry Givens, who fought for a name-change of the college to a university. “There was significant opposition, because everyone didn’t want to see Harris-Stowe expand,” Kinder pointed out. Later, Bosley quipped, “i don’t care what my critics now say of us – we’ve got a buliding named after us. I just hope no one shows up late at night looking for Freeman Bosley.” Among those on hand were: U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan; Greg F.X. Daly; Thelma Cook; Dr. James and Donna Knight; Rev. Earl Nance; Judge Jimmie and Stacy Edwards;Rep. Tishaura Jones; lobbyist Rodney Hubbard.
