Then & Now: A Community Conversation on Public Schools

April 30 @ 10:00 am-12:00 pm

Free

We invite the South Minneapolis community and current school board members to informally engage in conversation centering on ongoing issues that have played a role in educational policies since the time of the pairing of Hale and Field Elementary Schools in 1971. Reminiscent of the community coffee parties of the 1970’s, this program will be an informal gathering around dialogue and coffee.

We ask participants to view the “Separate Not Equal: The Hale–Field Pairing” exhibit, and reflect on the changes that were implemented after Brown v. Board of Education. Do these changes still exist in our current public school system? Was desegregation efforts successful in implementing permanent change? And finally, how do we see a way forward? There will be prompts available to help facilitate conversation.
