The Wilma Chestnut Story- Story of Resilience
Saturday May 19, 2012 3pm Lee Auditorium at the Missouri History Museum
Lindell & DeBaliviere in Forest Park


In 1971, St. Louis police rescued a teenager from an apartment where she was
babysitting. Wilma Chestnut was bleeding from both eyes. In this program, Chestnut
tells her unforgettably uplifting story of being suddenly forced to relearn everything
she knew after a madman molested and blinded her.
