Every year the city and county team up for various Black History Month activities; this year’s theme is “Economics in the Black Community.”  All of these lectures will be held on Wednesdays, 11:30-12:30 in City Hall or the Government Center.

Feb 6:  Barbara Jo Davis, Ken Davis Products, Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce, County A-24 (Okay, this one has already happened.  Sorry!)

Feb 13:  Jacqueline King, Federal Reserve Bank of Mpls, City Council Chambers, Rm 317

Feb 20:  Hussein Samatar, African Development Center (and former city Library Board member!), Level A Auditorium, County

Feb 27:  Dr. Rose M. Brewer, U of M, City Hall Atrium

It’s not clear how historical these presentations are going to be, but the speakers are all pretty interesting. I have various posts planned about Minnesota black history for this extra-long February, so stick around.
