Lou uses authentic photos, timelines and primary source documents to bring Luigi’s story to life. The presentation culminates with designer Gutzon Borglum’s praise of Luigi, the 25 year struggle to get him recognized and the CBS SUNDAY MORNING tribute where a plaque at Mount Rushmore is finally unveiled! Now a published book authored by Lou,Out of Rushmore’s Shadow is a dramatic and touching story about Luigi’s legacy and the immigrant struggle.
