Dr. Angela Jill Cooley and History major Olivia Johnson, both of Minnesota State University, Mankato, will discuss the Mapping Mankato project to document racial discrimination in Mankato. Where did racial discrimination exist in Mankato? What form did it take? How do we research this history? What contemporary impacts might this history have? This community project helps shed light on an unfortunate and little-known aspect of Blue Earth County’s history.
