Cuille Leads ‘Organic’ St. Louis Rally for France Victims

With communities around the world rallying to support France after last week’s tragic events, the Centre Francophone at Webster University led organization for the rally in downtown St. Louis by the Pierre Laclede statue outside City Hall.

Lionel Cuille, the Jane and Bruce Robert Endowed Chair in French and Francophone Studies in Webster’s College of Arts & Sciences, and the founder of Centre Francophone, was quoted in coverage from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the local NPR affiliate St. Louis Public Radio, and by NBC affiliate KSDK-TV.

Cuille, as quoted in the Post:

“I felt there was a desire from my French compatriots just to be together,” he said. “We just want to commemorate the victims. But I think what brings us together is the essential French values of liberté, égalité, fraternité.”
