Tracing the History of Real Estate Covenants in Minneapolis
December 8, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Racial covenants were used to bar people of a given race, ethnic origin, or religion, from buying or occupying property in Minneapolis. These discriminatory deeds underpinned an invisible system of American apartheid. This project, Mapping Prejudice, is headed up by a team of activists and scholars who are researching the city covenants with the help of volunteers. Using digital technology, they are assembling the first-ever map of racial covenants for an American city. Discover the hidden history of race in Minneapolis.
An optional holiday luncheon follows the program, at Hilltop Restaurant, 5101 Arcadia Ave, Edina (from 50th Street, turn left on Eden Avenue and right on Arcadia Avenue). We will order from the menu. Please reserve your space at the lunch by December 4th. Email your reservation, with the number in the party, to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 612-926-0646 and leave a message if necessary. Everyone is welcome.
