Greetings and welcome. My name is Richard Hudson. I was born and baptized on the South Side of St. Louis; a world unto itself.
That world has shaped me and those around me in inexplicable ways.
It is both small town and big city; both progressive and backward. It is black, it is white; it is dirty and beautiful. It’s where I was born and one of its many cemeteries is where I’ll finally rest.
It is home.
