Jim Crow of the North: Documentary Screening & Discussion 

 

Hosted by the Hale Elementary School and Armatage Parents Welcoming Equity Committees

March 11, 7:00 PM, Justice Page Middle School (1 W. 49th Street)

Why does Minneapolis suffer 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. These policies dramatically impact our city and schools now because of the housing segregation and the vastly inequitable property values and distribution of wealth they caused. As we consider the MPS Comprehensive District Design, understanding this history and its lasting legacy is vitally important. 

Jim Crow of the North is based on the work of the University of MN’s research project, Mapping Prejudice. The panel will include Daniel Pierce Bergin, Jim Crow of the North Producer, and Kirsten Delegard, Mapping Prejudice Project Director. Please Join the Hale Elementary School and Armatage Montessori School Welcoming Equity Committees on March 11 at 7:00 PM in the Justice Page Middle School auditorium for a screening and discussion.
