This Friday, January 15, a handful of copies of Richard Rothstein’s The Color Of Law: A Forgotten History Of How Our Government Segregated America will be added to our Little Free Library (near the main church entrance), courtesy of Hennepin History Museum. Check out this link for more information on this book. Could be a great excuse to stop by the building and walk the grounds 🙂
If you missed the working session with Penny Petersen and would like to learn more about reviewing deeds for racial covenants, please click here for a video of our session. Or, you can go directly to the Mapping Prejudice website and watch their training video and practice deed review. This is important Racial Justice work that you can do from the comfort of home.
