"Displaced," an interactive exhibit, explores the racially-motivated expulsion of Indigenous and Black peoples from the Linden Hills area of Southwest Minneapolis throughout history. Through archival and community histories, the stories of the displaced will be brought into dialogue with the present-day experiences of Linden Hills residents.
Join us for the opening event on June 11, 6:30-8 p.m. with Denise Pike, Project Lead and Exhibit Developer, who will discuss the exhibit and her role as a Public Historian and Graphic Artist for Mapping Prejudice (a cutting-edge research project from the University of Minnesota which documents, maps and presents data on restrictive covenants in Hennepin County) along with Maggie Mills, Historian and Designer of the digital component of the exhibit.
This multimedia exhibit will be on display June 10-July 11 at Linden Hills Library. On July 11, 6-9 p.m. the exhibit will be on display at the Linden Hills Park Building, during the library program "Jim Crow of the North: Documentary Screening and Discussion." Sponsor: Friends of the Linden Hills Library. Collaborator: Mapping Prejudice. Funded by Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
