Professor Christopher Lehman will talk about his new book documenting Minnesota’s ties to slavery on Wednesday, November 6th, at 7 p.m. in Miller Center Auditorium. This St. Cloud Times’ article reveals some of this history. (I mentioned some of this information in class the other day.) I recommend this article and also recommend that you attend Dr. Lehman’s talk. He’s always interesting.
Professor Christopher Lehman’s recent book examines how slave owners invested in Minnesota businesses and communities, including St. Cloud.
