The brothers (profiled a few years back in Riverfront Times) recently opened their Indigo Hotel in the Central West End. On CNN the brothers tell how they started out as St. Louis aldermen before striking out in real-estate.
Their properties include the Roberts Orpheum Theater, once known as the American Theater where the Roberts say their mother was forced to sit in the balcony because she was black. "Now she can sit anywhere she wants," they tell CNN.
