22. Home of Ms. Anne Brewster - Templeman Street

Ms. Anne Brewster was one of only a handful of black, female business women of her time, as co-owner of the Modern Beauty Shop. An associate of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ms. Brewster worked closely with the NAACP and hosted Dr. King and other civil rights advocates in her home. She was jailed several times in the early 1960s for her involvement in sit-ins and other peaceful demonstrations. Ms. Brewster died in 1963, but her memory lives on in the Anne Brewster Award, given each year to a Shreveport-area civil rights leader. (Also see #26, the Anne Brewster Civil Rights Memorial.)
