Join the Black Scranton Project at the University of Scranton to screen "Jim Crow of the North."
"Why does Minnesota suffer through some of the worst racial disparities in the nation? One answer is the spread of racist, restrictive real estate covenants in the early 20th century. Jim Crow of the North charts the progression of racist policies and practices from the advent of restrictive covenants after the turn of the last century to their final elimination in the late 1960s."
Please note: This film will be shown at the University of Scranton; this series is also part of the Scranton’s Story, Our Nation’s Story project (of which BSP is a partner), which is made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
