Rondo Days 2007


In this video – a MN Stories favorite – a couple of lifelong Rondo residents reconnect with their old schoolmate they hadn’t seen in 40 years.

Before Interstate 94, there was Rondo. Rondo Avenue was the heart of the vibrant Rondo neighborhood, St. Paul’s largest Black neighborhood. It was obliterated in the 1960’s by the construction of 94, but every year some of those severed connections are renewed during Rondo Days Festival.
