The saxophone-playing twin brothers Dwayne and Dwight Bosman and singer Denise Thimes are among the local citizens named by the St. Louis City NAACP as the "100 Most Inspiring St. Louisans," and will be honored this evening at a banquet at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront Hotel.
The list features a diverse group, including local leaders in education, business, media, government, the arts, medicine, law, community service, and more. In addition to Thimes and the Bosmans, it includes another name familiar to local jazz fans: Dr. Gerald Early of Washington University, who writes and speaks frequently about jazz and its relationship to American culture.
You can read a bit more more about the Bosmans and see the complete list of "100 Most Inspiring St. Louisans" in this feature story written by Doug Moore for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
