Jim Crow of the North

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. The Twin Cities PBS Original documentary “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.

Join YWCA St. Paul for a viewing of “Jim Crow of the North” followed by a facilitated discussion led by University of St. Thomas professor of history and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Yohuru Williams.

Friday, August 23
The program will start promptly at 2 p.m.

NEW LOCATION:

60 N Kent St
St Paul, MN 55102
