“Jim Crow of the North” Panel Discussion
February 17th at 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: Your Home
The event series “Co-op Community Conversations: Exploring the intersection of racial, social, and food justice” is presented by Eastside Food Co-op, Mississippi Market Food Co-op, Seward Community Co-op, and Twin Cities Co-op Partners as a way to examine and connect our cooperative values with social justice movements. Stay tuned for future events in this series taking place throughout the year.
Why do Minnesotans experience some of the worst racial disparities in home ownership in this country?
Join Twin Cities Food Co-ops, The East Side Freedom Library and TPT-2 to explore this question through the film “Jim Crow of the North,” which delves into the complex history of racial covenants in the Twin Cities and systematic racism that has lasting repercussions on housing inequities today.
Participants are invited to watch this hour-long documentary in advance of this virtual panel discussion with the film’s producer, Dan Bergin, Rebecca Walker from Mapping Prejudice, and food justice activist, Miah Ulysse. The discussion will also focus on how our co-op community can address the related inequity of food access in the Twin Cities.
Registered participants will be emailed the documentary link along with details to join the virtual event one week before, one day before, and again as a reminder one hour before the event begins. After the event, participants will also receive a link to the event recording for future reference.
