The University of Minnesota Goldstein Museum of Design and Stearline Rucker have loaned their Arthur and Edith Lee exhibit, “A Right to Establish a Home,” to Sabathani Community Center’s Cultural Historical Red Line Exhibit.

“A Right to Establish a Home” examines the Lee’s decision to buy a home beyond the African American red line and the history behind a series of protests that took place at 4600 Columbus Ave. S. in Minneapolis after they purchased the home in August of 1931.

The Cultural Historical Exhibits are located on the second floor of Sabathani Community Center, 310 East 38th Street, Minneapolis, MN  55409. The mission of each exhibit is to illustrate community life through sports, education, governance, entertainment and music. The exhibits are an interactive educational tool that highlights the accomplishments, celebrates current achievements, and inspires future generations of African American leaders.
