Community Discussion About the City Hall Murals
Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 7pm

For the past several years, discussions, debates, and actions have swirled across this country about the ways that our complex past has been represented by monuments, memorials, paintings, and place names. While often contentious, these discussions can serve a valuable educational function: that of making more of us better-informed about our history and its long-term consequences. These discussions can also help us to consider what we can do to make sure that our public spaces are welcoming to our neighbors as well as ourselves.

In November, residents and government officeholders of St. Paul and Ramsey County began to discuss the set of murals in the St. Paul City Hall chambers. The East Side Freedom Library has developed a reputation as a democratic, civic space, where diverse people can engage in difficult conversations. We think this is an important subject for members of our communities to address. We are excited that City Councilmember Jane Prince and County Commissioner Jim McDonoughhave offered to join in the conversation.
