Ep. 15 Living your Black life in Minnesota

Untangled Roots Podcast
Untangled Roots Podcast

We spoke to dozens of Black residents who told us what they think about living in Minnesota.  Some lamented the lack of Black cultural spaces and the prevalence of a form of ‘niceness’ that isn’t actually nice. However, some told us Minnesota has lots to offer and has the potential for much more. Plus, St. Paul mayor Melvin Carter III gives his ‘elevator pitch’ for why Black people should want to live in the capital city.  With co-hosts Brandt Williams and Jonathan Rabb.
