Learning from the Past: Environmental Justice and Transportation Corridor Planning

Pay as you can

Recommended ages: 14+

Join us for a conversation about how people are responding to social and environmental justice questions raised by freeway alignment projects in the past. 

Freeways like I-94 and I-35 displaced people, divided communities, and had environmental consequences, which continue to affect the natural environment and the health of those living near them. In this discussion, A Public History of 35W moderates a conversation about how people in the Rondo neighborhood of St. Paul are responding to social and environmental justice questions raised by freeway alignment projects in the past. A Public History of 35W is a community-collaborative oral history and research project on 35W in South Minneapolis from the University of Minnesota’s Heritage Studies and Public History Program.

 

This virtual event is hosted by the Hennepin History Museum in partnership with the Bell Museum.
