Event Details

Join us for a panel discussion and public conversation about the origins of housing segregation in Minneapolis.

“Why does Minnesota suffer through some of the worst racial disparities in the nation? One answer is the spread of racist, restrictive real estate covenants in the early 20th century. Jim Crow of the North charts the progression of racist policies and practices from the advent of restrictive covenants after the turn of the last century to their final elimination in the late 1960s.”
Jim Crow of the North, a Twin Cities Public Television documentary film is based on the work of the Mapping Prejudice Project at the University of Minnesota. The film is about 60 minutes in length and will be followed by panel discussion and reception with refreshments.
