The Minneapolis Urban League and the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest along with other co-sponsors invite you to a public screening of Jim Crow of the North, a Twin Cities Public Television documentary film based on the work of the Mapping Prejudice Project at the University of Minnesota.   Join us Thursday, May 9, 2019, 7 PM at the Elmer L. Andersen Library University of Minnesota- 222 21st Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55455.
“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.”
The film is about 60 minutes in length and will be followed by panel discussion and reception with refreshments.  RSVP Here.
