When South Minneapolis residents lost their homes to 35W, where could they go?
Join Heidi Adelsman, Jacob Noble, and Denise Pike of A Public History of 35W as they explore themes around housing discrimination and displacement. These local historians will touch on several topics including discriminatory housing practices and policies, the displacement of families for the construction of I-35W in South Minneapolis, and a presentation on the Tilsenbilt Homes, believed to be one of the first federally-supported residential housing developments in the United States that was open to homebuyers of all races. The panel presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
This virtual presentation will be held via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Participants will receive the virtual meeting link upon registration.
