In 1904, nearly 1,200 Filipinos were brought to the U.S. to take part in the World’s Fair in St. Louis. Some worked as guides, but others were put on display. More than a century later, a new exhibit explores the impact in St. Louis and beyond. Communities correspondent Gabrielle Hays reports.

Correction: The introduction to this segment incorrectly states that Filipinos were flown to the U.S. in 1904. The description has been updated. We regret the error.
