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.
