A Campus Divided: Progressives, Anticommunists, Racism and Antisemitism at the University of Minnesota from 1930-1943.
From 1930 until 1942, the University of Minnesota was at the center of state and global conflicts about war and student rights. Prof. Emerita Riv-Ellen Prell will discuss how student movements protested policies of suppression of student rights, exclusion of African Americans from taxpayer-funded student housing, and the segregation of both Jewish and Black students from campus life. Echoes of this story continue to reverberate into our own era. Co-sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute [OLLI] with the financial support of MN's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
