From Statehood to WWII: Minnesota's Black Past in Photographs

The inaugural exhibition, titled From Statehood to WWII: Minnesota’s Black Past in Photographs, is set to run from April 1st to April 5th at Artista Bottega in Lowertown Saint Paul.  20 photographic prints, ranging from the mid-1800s to 1945, will be featured at the gallery. The exhibition offers the viewer an introduction to the social, economic, and cultural development of early black Minnesotans.  Familiar figures, like George Bonga, appear alongside unknown figures whose stories have been lost to us, with the exhibition aiming to demonstrate a wide range of black experiences in the state.
