“Jim Crow of the North” Screening & Community Conversation

SAPCC will host a virtual screening and community conversation about the documentary “Jim Crow of the North” at 4 p.m., Dec. 12. Email emily@sapcc.org for the link and visit sapcc.org/mappingprejudice for more information.

This one-hour TPT Minnesota Experience documentary uses the history of racial covenants in Minneapolis to explore the complex history of discriminatory housing policies and their contemporary legacies. This Emmy award-­winning film explains why mapping racial covenants is so important.

Work by Mapping Prejudice was the basis of the documentary, according to a MinnPost article. Mapping Prejudice is a partnership between the University of Minnesota and St. Catherine University. District councils are working together to promote their work citywide.
