Don Fraser – Minnesota’s Quiet Crusader

December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Don Fraser’s career spanned the last half of the twentieth century. As a Minnesota state senator, U.S. congressman, and Minneapolis mayor Fraser was deeply involved in the key issues of his era, including the civil rights struggle, opposition to the war in Viet Nam, and efforts to combat urban poverty. Historian Iric Nathanson’s new biography, Don Fraser – Minnesota’s
Quiet Crusader
, sheds new light on a Minnesota political figure whose quiet demeanor masked a fierce resolve to move forward a progressive agenda. Suggested donation is $5 for non-members of LHHSG.

An optional holiday luncheon at Perkins Restaurant, 4917 Eden Ave, Edina, follows the program. We will order from the menu. Please reserve your space at the lunch by Tuesday, November 28th.
