Community inaugurates Black history-themed MLK playground

Community members got their first taste of a new interactive playground centered around the Civil Rights Movement and African American history on Saturday, August 22 at MLK Jr. Park in South Minneapolis. The playground launch was the focal point of this year’s Celebrate Our Beloved Community event and the latest in ongoing park renovations following the rededication of the Freedom Form II sculpture in August of 2014.
