Mound City Bar Association logo


Our Mission

Mound City Bar Association is the oldest black bar association west of the Mississippi River. It was organized as the St. Louis Negro Bar Association on January 7, 1922, at a time when black lawyers were not allowed to join the all-white St. Louis Bar Association.

Our objectives are to advance the professional interests and professional development of our members; promote the administration of justice; uphold the honor of the legal profession; and provide service to the community.
