Hennepin History Museum

Hennepin History Museum is hosting two exhibits of great interest to LAI-MN members, and we invite you to join us for a special private event where we’ll hear from Greg Donofrio, PhD, director of the Heritage Studies and Public History Program at the University of Minnesota’s School of Architecture and College of Design. Donofrio was a member of the team, with HSPH students and community collaborators, that co-curated the “Human Toll” exhibit. After Donofrio’s presentation, we’ll get a private showing of “Human Toll: A Public History of 35W.” “Human Toll” illustrates how freeway construction destroyed and divided Black communities across the U.S., amplifying the effects of systemic racism still felt today. A second exhibit will also be open to us: “Separate Not Equal” commemorates the Hale and Field School pairing that sparked desegregation efforts throughout the MPS district.
