Refreshing the History of 27th & Lake/Downtown Longfellow with Cara Letofsky
October 17 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The history of Lake Street is being made as we speak. Join Lake Street historian Cara
Letofsky for a combination history and current events of 27th and Lake, otherwise known
as Downtown Longfellow. The discussion will cover the development of the area from
Dakota land to a working-class community fueled by immigrants and industry, to ground
zero of the uprising in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police.
This is intended to be a conversation about how the current historical events can be
woven into the story of the area.
